NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Neighbourhood Watch is the biggest voluntary organisation in the country. It combines old-fashioned good neighbourliness with modem communications. The West Kent Neighbourhood Watch Association (WKNWA) covers three districts and aims to build community spirit so that neighbours work together to reduce crime.

Coordinators are sought to set up schemes in Lamberhurst. The village might be broken down into four specific areas for NhW schemes: the main village, the Down, Lamberhurst Quarter and Hook Green. Each coordinator would help to set up the scheme and thereafter be its leader.

The coordinator uses email and receives information from "e-watch" and also from "Kent Community Messaging" (KCM) and passes on information to the rest of his/her scheme. Sometimes there may be an Area Coordinator who will provide a link between all coordinators in a village.

Almost every Scheme operates in a different way depending on the coordinator's skills, inclination and time available, and the neighbours' needs and wishes. Usually older and vulnerable people receive particular attention. A good working relationship with the Police is clearly essential.

If you would be interested in setting up a scheme in one of these areas contact VWLO Jacqui Blake at 01622604395 or Jacqui.blake@kent.pnn.police.uk.


More Ways to Contact your Neighbourhood Police Officer




As part of a new initiative, Police Contact Points have been launched in the east of the county in July, and will come to West Kent in August, and North Kent in September.

Police Contact Points are held each day from Wednesday through to Sunday, mainly in rural locations, on a rolling two-week schedule. Our police vans stop at a prominent location for one and a half hours per visit, enabling residents to drop by and speak to a neighbourhood officer about any policing concerns or issues they may have. The new Contact Points are in addition to the existing surgeries, meetings and online question and answer sessions local officers hold each month.

The contact points are currently available in Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Shepway and Thanet and by the autumn will be available across the county. Residents can follow their progress on dedicated Twitter accounts.
For times and locations of the Police Contact Points, and to find out about other ways of contacting Kent Police in your area, please visit the Kent Police website (www.kent.police.uk) and follow the links from the home page.
