Neighbourhood Watch is the largest voluntary crime prevention group in the country.  It is based on the idea of communities coming together to reduce crime and increase community cohesion.   Neighbourhood Watch Associations support coordinators who run schemes throughout the area; they provide latest information, leaflets and any help that is needed.  Schemes bring community spirit back into neighbourhoods by creating and maintaining a caring community and it gives people the opportunity to get to know and help each other to provide a strong voice when action is necessary to solve a local problem.     

Patrons: High Sheriffs of East and West Sussex

SUSSEX COUNTRYWATCH scheme was launched at the Autumn Show and Game Fair at the South of England Showground, Ardingly October this year.

Sussex Countrywatch is a partnership initiative to help strengthen and protect our rural communities against crime by sharing information and providing practical prevention advice.

We know that people in Sussex are passionate about our county’s countryside and protecting it from crime. We are reaching out to people living, working or visiting our rural areas to assist us and our partners tackle rural crime and catch those who are responsible for it.

By signing up to Sussex Countrywatch, subscribers will receive regular updates straight into their email account from police and partner agencies to keep up to date with the latest rural matters. Subscribers are encouraged to report crime and recommend others to sign up, creating a network of eyes and ears in rural communities.
