Neighbourhood Watch

You can find your local group and learn more about crime prevention. 

Neighbourhood Watch schemes

The schemes can: 

  • help to cut crime and opportunities for crime
  • reassure people that live in the area
  • encourage neighbours to come together

South Yorkshire Neighbourhood Watch

There are 3,500 Neighbourhood Watch schemes in South Yorkshire. They involve over 100,000 households throughout the county. We help groups to set up Neighbourhood Watch across South Yorkshire to make our area a safer place to live.

We put them in touch with groups that can help their needs. These include South Yorkshire Police and the community officers (PCSOs), local council liaison workers, TARAs, housing associations etc.

We now have different schemes to suit different needs:

  • school watch
  • allotment watch
  • park watch
  • play watch
  • rural watch
  • business/shop watch
  • Trans Pennine Trail watch
