Holt residents encouraged to help fight crime

People in a north Norfolk village are being encouraged to help fight crime by joining a community-run scheme.

Home Watch groups are run by residents and supported by the police and have four main objectives, to prevent crime, to help with the detection of criminals, to reduce undue fear of crime and to improve police-community relations.

PCSO Guy Slade, from the Holt Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), is a contact for Home Watch in the Holt area.

He said: 'Home Watch is a scheme where neighbours look out for each other and help to deter crime from occurring in their community.

'Members receive regular updates about criminal activity in their area and are given tips and advice on how they can help protect their property, which can help improve their sense of security and understanding of crime and police activity in their area.'

To find out more, people can contact PCSO Slade on 0845 456 4567 or log onto www.norfolk.police.uk, and click on the Home Watch logo.
