What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch is a crime prevention and community safety programme for urban areas. It operates as a partnership between An Garda Síochána and the public. It works on the basis that every member of a community can help to improve the quality of life in the area by keeping a look out for neighbours and reporting suspicious activities to the Gardaí.

Who can set up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?

Every community or neighbourhood, no matter how large or small, can set up a scheme. A scheme can cover a single street, an apartment complex, a part or the whole of a housing estate. The heart of every scheme is the commitment of each household taking part in it.

What are some of the aims of Neighbourhood Watch?

  • To improve community safety
  • To prevent crime
  • To develop Garda and community links
  • To increase public confidence in An Garda Síochána
  • To foster a caring environment for older and vulnerable people
  • To reduce anti-social behaviour, including graffiti and harassment
