The aim is to bring neighbours together to create a strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen.

Our vision is that of a caring society that is focused on trust and respect in which people are safe from crime and enjoy a good quality of life. Neighbourhood Watch is about making sure that fewer people feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live.

Business WatchBusiness Watch

Crimes against local businesses affect us all as they have to pass on the cost of these crimes to their customers. Durham Constabulary is working with local businesses to deal with these crimes.

In 2010, Business Watch started in Newton Aycliffe and to date has seen a fall in crimes against business of over 60%! It has now spread to the Bishop Auckland area and it is planned for it to cover the whole of Co Durham and Darlington in the very near future.

Business Watch makes economic sense!
