Neighbourhood Watch is the largest voluntary organisation in the country and is supported locally by the Police and the Parish Council. The aim of a neighbourhood watch scheme is to reduce crime and fear of crime in the local community through the provision of practical security advice and information, by encouraging householders to be alert to what is going on around them and to look out for themselves and for others.
The co-ordinators of the schemes and the various road representatives meet every four months to discuss concerns and to share information. Salient topics from these meetings are published in the Parish Magazine. Much of Clandon is covered by NW schemes but some areas do not have a co-ordinator and new volunteers are always welcome.
