Message sent on behalf of Marion Lewis OBE to: Watch Representatives (regional and force area), NHWN Trustees and Advisory Group members
Dear Watch Representatives, members, Trustees and Advisory Group members,
Please can you ‘cascade’ this message to as many of your Neighbourhood Watch contacts as possible. It has also been sent to ACPO for circulation to police single points of contact.
Moving forward towards the brand repositioning and website launch in October, we are looking at ways of generating some positive media coverage around Neighbourhood Watch at this time. One effective approach would be to offer the media some case studies of Neighbourhood Watch members who have helped to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in their area.
We are looking for such case studies – for example where someone has intervened to prevent a crime – and also for examples of Watch members who are really proactive, well known in their neighbourhoods and have been able to promote community spirit or help a vulnerable group. The more people we can have the better, and it would be great to have a selection from around the country.
What would happen next would be that journalists would be offered the chance to do pre-recorded feature type pieces with these Watch members, along the lines of ‘a day in the life of’, profiles on their stories and possibly spending a bit of time with them and seeing what they do. This would be part of a bigger media package which would also include interviews
with the Home Office and staff at NHWN.
We are looking for proactive Watch members who would be happy to talk to the media – particularly people who buck the traditional ‘curtain twitcher’ stereotypes, but most importantly people who are active in their communities and in helping to fight crime.
If you know of anyone who you feel would be suitable to be put forward for this, please do pass us their contact details or encourage them to contact us on or 0116 229 3118. Anyone suggested will not be pressurised to take part – it’s important that people are comfortable to proceed.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at the email address or phone number given above.
Yours sincerely,
