Resources for NHW Members

When you join Neighbourhood Watch, you will be given advice and assistance to help improve your own home security and to act pro-actively to support your immediate neighbours and the community you live in.  Preventing crime from occurring is the first step any community should take to ensure residents can live in safe neighbourhoods and free from the ‘fear of crime’.

In addition to this basic information and guidance, members will also receive a membership card and other items shown below.  

Additionally, individual households or NHW schemes can now purchase SmartWater property marking kits at a greatly reduced price. Find out more, here.  


The Neighbourhood Watch door and window sticker.

Place on a suitable internal glass window to alert everyone to the fact that you are a member of NHW.

No Cold Calling sticker.

Recently updated especially for Bedfordshire NHW members. Place on a suitable internal glass window to alert everyone to the fact that you do not want uninvited callers, or any “cold-calling”. The sticker also provides useful reminders to lock other doors to prevent any “distraction type burglaries” from occurring.

All new members receive one of these stickers.  

Existing members can obtain one of these through their Street Scheme or Area Coordinator.
