AVON and SOMERSET WATCH is actively supported by the Avon and Somerset Police and the PCC in promoting and actively improving personal safety, security and crime prevention. In addition, we are working with other voluntary organisations; public and private sector bodies concerned with reducing crime; anti-social behaviour; and improving safety, well-being, security and resilience of communities and the general public across Avon and Somerset.
AVON and SOMERSET WATCH aims to provide information and coordination in support of a safe and secure environment for individuals and communities within the 'force area'; as well as providing opportunities to become actively involved in organisations, communities, schemes and projects across Avon and Somerset. We are extending the traditional role and scope of Neighbourhood Watch and its principles to provide a wider and more inclusive support network to collectively meet new and emerging challenges in today’s rapidly changing world; and to encourage active participation.
