Watch London

Neighbourhood Watch London’s ‘Watch Area Program’ is a program where neighbours unite and work together. We believe that a safe neighbourhood is one where neighbours talk to each other, and become familiar with their neighbourhood. Where neighbours take the time to know what is going on, look out for and care about each other. If something out of the ordinary is observed it is reported to London Police Services and then to the other members of their Neighoburhood Watch area. No one knows more about what is going on in a neighbourhood than those that live there.

Studies prove that vibrant and thriving Neighbourhood Watch communities are safer and less likely to be targeted.

Setting up a Watch is simple and anyone living in the City of London can belong to a Neighbourhood Watch community. Our dedicated staff will help you get started and ensure that you get all the support and resources you need to have a successful ‘Neighbourhood Watch’.

How it Works

The word “Watch” Simply means ‘to look out for’.  It works by bringing people together, with a common purpose to create a safe neighbourhood. The Watch Area is lead by a volunteer from the neighbourhood we call an Area Coordinator.  To find out more about becoming an Area Coordinator click here.

We work with members on how they can:

  • Make their homes and apartments safer and less inviting for thieves;
  • Communicate in effective ways with one another and London Police Services;
  • Participate in Operation Identification;
  • Identify suspicious activity in the neighbourhood
  • Be aware when your neighbours are away on vacation and watch each others home
