About Us

The group was formed back in June 2004 and the area that we watch has grown a bit since then. The streets that are now part of our scheme are detailed on the map below and there are pictures of all the street coordinators below that..

Our primary role is to raise awareness amongst our neighbourhood of the simple, yet effective, ways in which crime can be hindered and minimised. We also act as a conduit to the residents of information from local Community Police Officers.

Click on any of the portraits below to contact your street coordinator directly by email. [the proper images will be posted here by the end of May 2008]
