Get Involved in Street Watch

(originally Posted by Alan Winter on February 29, 2012)
Street Watch has won an award of £7,700 grant from the Home Office, towards three schemes in the south of Bedfordshire, including Tithe Farm and Sandringham Drive, in Houghton Regis.
Its purpose is to help prevent crime by increasing visibility and maintaining a caring and cohesive community, and to use effective communication with the police by promptly reporting suspicious activity.
The scheme is supported by Bedfordshire Police.
Members help the community by patrolling in pairs. A commitment of just 2 hours a month is requested, but otherwise there is no limit, provided you are willing.

Pictured below are local councillors who are involved in Street Watch, and they would like to find more members of the public to help them.
Peter Carrington, local organiser said, "Taking part helps you to keep fit and healthy. Patrolling times and dates are to suit the volunteers. We all  wear hi-vis Street Watch jackets, and all members are covered by public liability insurance and personal accident and injury cover, and are CRB checked. The award will help to fund these things."
For more information contact: Houghton Regis police on 01582 473448 or call in at Sundon Road Police Station. The Houghton Regis co-ordinator is Pete Carrington, Tel: 01582-866314
