Neighbourhood Watch

SAPHRA encourages residents to join the neighbourhood watch scheme in our area.

Neighbourhood Watch is a crime prevention initiative. Neighbourhood Watch members receive regular email updates from Hertfordshire's OWL (Online Watch Link) system. Through OWL your local policing team will keep you informed about local policing events, advise about any crime concerns in our area and keep you updated with the latest crime prevention information and advice.

You can join the local watch scheme by signing up for the Online Watch Link (OWL) system via If you would like more information about Neighbourhood watch and the OWL system please get in touch with SAPHRA (details on our contact page). 

Neighbourhood Watch signs are displayed in streets in the SAPHRA area. The police advise that Neighbourhood Watch signs help discourage opportunist crime. We can provide a Neighbourhood Watch sticker for you to display in your property, along with crime prevention leaflets.
