We are Rochford District NHW and are unusual in the county having an office 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 when we ask for extra vigilance or give them warning of current local crime trends.

We also produce a quarterly Newsletter that is distributed by our street coordinators to some 5000 households and can also be accessed on line. 

Always looking to increase the coverage of NHW in Rochford 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. 

Other initiatives include distribution of Message in Bottle units and Immobitag Cycle tagging events which identify individual cycles to their owner for return should they be stolen and subsequently recovered.
