    About us
    Welcome to the Bedford and District Neighbourhood Watch Web site.
    Neighbourhood Watch is about – 
    • looking out for each other;
    • working together for a safer neighbourhood;
    • striving to keep your property and community secure.

    By joining Neighbourhood Watch, you will become part of one of the most successful and long-standing schemes in the whole country.

    Bedford was one the first schemes in the country, starting in 1983. It was a way for communities to come together to aim for safer local communities.
    We are a registered charity with a board of trustees who meet monthly.
    We work in partnership with Bedfordshire Police, Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue Service and Bedford Borough Council and a variety of agencies involved with community wellbeing.
    Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most effective crime reduction initiatives and its values are recognised by our partners, the Police, Fire & Rescue Service and the Borough and Parish Councils. It’s all about people getting together and actively having a positive impact on crime in their area.

    Crime cannot flourish in a Community that Cares.

    It is not just about reducing burglary figures – it’s about creating communities who care and brings local people together to make a real contribution to improving their lives. The activity of Watch members can foster a new community spirit and a belief in the community’s ability to tackle problems. And a security in knowing your neighbours are keeping a watch on your property too.
