Name change but not our values ! 
In 2014 following community consultation and requests we changed our name to reflect the areas & over 60 types of watch schemes that we design, implement, manage & support. 
Staying Safe Together

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest & most successful crime prevention initiatives ever, now involving millions of people around the country. It is based on the simple idea that you & your neighbours can help to prevent and reduce crime & create a better place to live, work and play. Our other type of watch schemes are modelled on neighbourhood watch, but tailored to suit the needs of the watch categories.


Y.K.O.P.S. (youth keeping older people safe) is our intergenerational award winning project that we have been delivering in Schools and Communities since 2015.

The objective of YKOPS is to engage with young people to help increase their safety as well as helping them to help keep their Grand Parents safe from doorstep crime/scams.

One of young crime prevention volunteers Nathan who has helped in the delivery of these events over the last few years said, “Buckley 2nd Brownies and Rainbows came to visit the OWL Cymru base unit and really enjoyed all of the crime prevention activities of coding property using UV pen and light, fingerprinting, crime prevention house security ACE Detective quiz and survey. They met Sheriff HUG, learnt people who help us, and about making choices in life including visiting our Your Choice, billy burglar, police officer or neighbourhood superhero.”
