Community Neighbourhood Watch
The council has teamed up with the very successful and established Metropolitan Police Community Neighbourhood Watch, extending the scheme into the borough’s parks and open space.
The scheme now encourages Friends of Parks and park users to report incidents of anti social behaviour or anything they think suspicious to the Community Neighbourhood Watch coordinator.
Pauline Syddell, Community Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator
Tel 020 8721 6803
Please remember that if a crime is being committed or someone is in immediate danger always call 999.
The coordinator, based within the Metropolitan Police within Haringey, will act as liaison between the various agencies to deal with the reported matter and resolve it in the most appropriate and effective way possible, while keeping all parties informed of progress.
Existing Neighbourhood Watches - of which there are now over 300 in Haringey with an estimated 19,000 members - are run by local residents with support from the police and partner agencies, including the council. Members of the Watch decide their objectives how it will operate. The Haringey Association of Neighbourhood Watches meets on a quarterly basis to update members and share information. Minutes from these meetings can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
Up until recently Watches had focused on activity within their local streets, but they are now being encouraged to ‘adopt’ their local parks and green spaces and report incidents to the Community Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator.
To find out if your road is covered by an existing Neighbourhood Watch please see the attached document below.
If you would like to join your local Neighbourhood Watch, start a new one or report anything suspicious or incidents of anti social behaviour taking place on the streets or in the parks of Haringey, please contact the Community Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator using the contact details above.
