A new neighbourhood watch scheme has been set up for our area. If you are interested in joining, please contact the Mortimer Neighbourhood Watch coordinator on

So what’s it all about?
A watch scheme is about bringing together responsible members of local communities to look out for each other, and to work in partnership with the police to prevent and deter crime.
It’s not about being a busybody or snooping into other people’s affairs. It’s about adding our eyes, ears and voices in a combined effort to tackle criminal, suspicious and anti-social behaviour in our community so that we can keep our neighbourhood a safe place in which to live.
In brief, being a good neighbour – being alert to what is happening in the local area and responding to it.
We live in a community where information is already shared by word of mouth and on social media about issues in our neighbourhood. Our watch scheme aims to formalise that for the benefit of all in our community.
The police cannot have an officer on every street corner, and those of us who live here are more likely to recognise something unusual or suspicious. Neighbourhood Watch is closely supported by West Mercia Police and, working with them, we can make a difference.
