Residents in Mansfield and Ashfield are being encouraged to start up neighbourhood watch schemes on their street in order to help prevent crime.

People interested should get in touch with the Mansfield and District NHW Office (open Wednesday to Friday from 8.30am – 12 noon) for advice by calling Mansfield 427634 or emailing

A neighbourhood watch scheme helps prevent crime in your area and to help others in your neighbourhood, particularly the elderly.

The Neighbourhood ALERT messages do most of the work for the coordinators.

If neighbours register on the ALERT messaging system there is less need for coordinators to copy messages and put them through the letterboxes, though there is still a need for coordinator to be in contact with neighbours.

The website gives members information and crimes circulated in the Mansfield areas.
