We are Rochford District NHW and are unusual in the county having office space in the Essex Police Community Safety Hub, Castle Point Council Offices. The NHW Group is managed on weekday mornings by a dedicated team of volunteers.
On a weekly basis they receive the crime statistics for the area and arrange for this information to be passed to any relevant street co-ordinator by email. They also issue warnings of current local crime trends, scams, etc.
We also produce a Newsletter three times a year that is distributed by our street coordinators to some 13000 households and will also be accessible on line in the near future. Here is the most recent of these: Front Page Back Page
We are always looking to increase the coverage of NHW in Rochford District and 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 which are kept in the fridge with any medical conditions and prescribed drugs detailed inside, and Cycle tagging events which identify individual cycles to their owner for return should they be stolen and subsequently recovered.
