NEIGHBOURHOOD Watch groups in Hucknall and the rest of Nottinghamshire are taking their fight against crime online.
The county’s Neighbourhood Watch Association is the umbrella organisation for such schemes which help to protect more than 100,000 homes through a network of 30,000 volunteer members.
A new website, www.nottswatch.com, is being funded by the county council. It will be used to keep the public informed about the latest crime and community safety news, local police officer contacts, where the nearest watch scheme is based, and who to contact about setting up a new scheme. Information about local events, training and advice can be downloaded free.
