Basildon Borough Neighbourhood Watch is the overarching organisation for local Neighbourhood Watch schemes/watches that have been set up in Basildon, Billericay, Wickford and other parts of the Borough.  Oversight is provided by a Steering Committee which represents them at Community Partnership meetings with Basildon Council, Essex Police and other such bodies. It also represents them at Essex County Executive level meetings and supports Community fundraising days to promote Basildon Neighbourhood Watch.  The Steering Committee seeks financial support to pursue their objectives from any source deemed to be appropriate. The Steering Committee encourages the development of existing schemes and the creation of new schemes within the Borough by offering a support service for anyone wishing to set up a new Watch Scheme.We are able to supply the necessary materials free of charge to set up new groups such as street signs and literature along with advice and guidance. Through the various “Watches” we actively encourage residents of the Borough to join their local watch scheme. We are also looking to substantially increase the number of schemes in certain of the Borough’s Wards which currently have little Neighbourhood Watch representation. If you wish to know more about joining a scheme whether as a member or a Street Coordinator within the Basildon Borough please contact [email protected] or call 07814 739577.

We hold our Annual General Meeting in June and all  Co-ordinators and members of NhW groups within the Borough of Basildon are welcome to attend. We have a Facebook Page and a Twitter account for Basildon Neighbourhood Watch, hashtag @WatchBasildon. If you wish to know more about joining a scheme whether as a member or a Street Coordinator within the Basildon Borough please contact [email protected] or call 07814 739577.


Since November 2023 we have started up 4 new Neighbourhood Watch schemes in the Borough , all with keen energetic Co-ordinators. We continue to supply our members with NhW Wheelie Bin stickers which have proved popular. All of our Co-ordinators are also now provided with ID Name Badges and Pin Badges  . On 24th November we attended The Heart Of Pitsea Crime Awareness event and had a stall at their Christmas Fair on 2nd December.  On the 9th December we were at the Felmores Christmas event.  We are represented at the monthly Multi Agency Tasking Group (MATG) Meetings to have a joint approach to matters of concern across the Borough.

Basildon Council run a series of Together For Safer Communities (TFSC) Meetings in different wards where residents can engage with police, local Councillors and Neighbourhood Watch. Security items are handed out to all those that attend.  We also engage with our local PCSO's at the Let's Talk (previously Coffee with Cops) gatherings around the Borough.

Our last Basildon Borough Neighbourhood Watch Steering Committee Meeting was held on 9th January.
