CASTLE POINT NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
We are Castle Point District NHW and unusual in the county having a shared office with Rochford District NHW in Rayleigh Police Station which is managed on weekday mornings by a dedicated team of volunteers.
This core team comprise a Chairman, Treasurer and Recruitment Secretary who administer the group and work closely with the Essex Watch Liaison Officer and Crime Prevention Officer who conveniently work in an adjacent office.
On a daily basis they receive the crime statistics for the area and ring out to any relevant Street Co-ordinator should there have been a burglary or vehicle crime in their area. At these times we ask them for extra vigilance and to report anything they may have observed.
We also produce a regular Newsletter that is distributed by our street coordinators to some 15000 households and can also be accessed on line.
Always looking to increase the coverage of NHW in Castle Point district we support as many local events as possible to promote NHW where we give out purse straps and bells, plus literature on the latest scams and crime trends as a means of engaging with the public.
The core team are helped and work closely with the Castle Point Crime and Disorder Partnership on other initiatives and can be contacted at:The Neighbourhood Watch Office, Rayleigh Police Station, 119 High Street, Rayleigh, SS6 7QB 24 hour direct line - 01268 770519.
