Neighbourhood Watch

Hemingford Abbots Neighbourhood Watch Area coordinator position is currently vacant; if anyone is interested in running our NHW scheme then please contact the Parish Clerk.

The NHW co-ordinator is supported by a group of volunteers (local co-ordinators) who share the work and are each responsible for a small group of properties in the village.  A list of local coordinators is provided below; Each of these coordinators regularly receives information from the police concerning local crime patterns in the local area. It is the responsibility of each coordinator to disseminate pertinent information to their local residents. Urgent information is also posted on village notice boards.

The police publish statistics of crimes committed in the locality. This may be viewed by postcode on the police website < and following the link through "My Neighbourhood" and the required postcode.

A service called "e-cops" has been introduced, which is an email newsletter service from Cambridgeshire Constabulary. It is meant to complement Neighbourhood Watch and is a good way to keep up to date with community news and policing. Any member of the public may join up by visiting
