Towcester Neighbourhood Watch consists entirely of volunteers throughout the community. We are a fully constituted group with a Data Protection Policy and Annual General Meeting. All roles are purely based around information sharing. All residents are very welcome to help us! Membership takes place at three levels:
Management Team (Committee)
A small group of volunteers responsible for providing the overall direction of the organisation and sharing information as appropriate with our membership and external agencies (police, council officers, Trading Standards, etc.).
Residents throughout Towcester who wish to help share information about local crime and anti-social behaviour, via their Street Reps and Coordinators.
