Home Watch help needed in High Kelling
High Kelling householders are being urged to help the police fight crime by becoming Home Watch co-ordinators.
Home Watch members act as the 'eyes and ears' of their neighbourhood, protecting the most vulnerable members of the community, and sharing information with police.
Co-ordinators ensure the smooth running of the schemes and provide a link between members and the police. They also record member details, maintain any Home Watch signage and distribute crime prevention materials.
They are currently needed in: Avenue Road, Vale Road, Bernard Road and Bernard Close, Warren Road and Warren Close, and Old Cromer Road.
PCSO Guy Slade, from the Holt Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), is the Home Watch contact for the area.
'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.
'We already have a number of Home Watch schemes up and running in the Holt area, including schemes in Pineheath Road and Heathfield Road and Heathfield Close in High Kelling and have a number of residents interested in joining Home Watch schemes in other areas.'
