Sign up for Neighbourhood Watch

Good Morning Rural Chippenham Residents,

I am your local PCSO, Charlotte. Over the past few years, the use of Neighbourhood Watch has seen a decline. This is something I would like to rectify and bring back to life.

I transferred to Chippenham in July 2019 following two years of service in Swindon.
Whilst working in Swindon, I had a number of neighbourhood watch groups set up. These were purely email-based schemes, similar to how community messaging works. These schemes benefitted their communities massively, as well as the police.
We were able to solve a number of crimes due to local residents being able to identify suspects or provide us with CCTV footage of incidents. This would not have happened without the vital link created via neighbourhood watch.
I would like to set up similar schemes in the Chippenham Rural area and would encourage you all to become a part of this. There are no meetings involved. Just emails sent from myself, keeping you up to date with community concerns, information requests (CCTV enquires) and the actions taken by Wiltshire Police to help keep your community safe.

To join, please simply email8235@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk- with you name and address. Please ensure to set the subject field to "*name of your village* NHW".
Example: "Sutton Benger NHW - I would like to join the neighbourhood watch scheme in my local area. My details are as follows: John Smith, 123 Church Road, Village, SN....."

I will then be in contact with further information.
Please note - the email address above is not monitored 24/7 and residents are not to report crimes/incidents via this email. If you want to report an emergency, please call 999. To report a non emergency, please call 101.

I look forward to hearing from you all.


Kind regards,

Charlotte Windle
