Nominations being sought for Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator of the Year
TO recognise the important role that Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators play in making Essex one of the safest places to live and work, Essex Police and Essex Police Authority are supporting the Essex Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator of the Year Award for 2012.
With more than eight thousand volunteer co-ordinators, Neighbourhood Watch schemes provide support and reassurance to around 40 percent of households in Essex.
Alan Johnson, Chair of the Essex County Neighbourhood Watch Association said: “Neighbourhood Watch provides a great opportunity for people to get involved in their communities, create a strong local spirit and crucially help keep their community safe.”
Each of the county’s districts is inviting the public and others involved in community safety to nominate co-ordinators who have demonstrated excellent service in their community.
Each district will judge the nominations and submit one as its candidate for the prestigious Essex Co-ordinator of the Year Award. All the other candidates will receive a certificate of appreciation at a ceremony in January 2013.
