Help your community by reporting crime and antisocial behaviour

My Community Voice – register to receive alerts and share information

My Community Voice is a useful tool that lets you receive real-time alerts and share information with Kent Police. (It is not a tool for reporting crime.)

Reporting a crime

It’s really important to report crime or antisocial behaviour through the formal channels. If you don’t report it, there is no record or evidence to help the Police and other agencies tackle any issues.

You should use the official channels:

999 if it is an emergency or incident being witnessed there and then

101 after the incident or if you have information about an incident/issue

Report online: www.kent.police.uk/report

CrimeStoppers: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/

email the Community Safety team at Sevenoaks District Council: community.safety@sevenoaks.gov.uk

All information is treated confidentially. You can also contact CrimeStoppers and report online anonymously.

PACT (Partners & Community Together)

You are invited to the next meeting on 22 April, 2.00 pm at Rickards Hall to meet with the Police and other agencies. Learn more about PACT

Find out about Neighbourhood Watch in your area

Are you interested in finding out whether there is a Neighbourhood Watch scheme running near you, or perhaps you are keen to set up a new scheme?

There a number of schemes currently operating in Edenbridge – to learn more, or to set up a new scheme, please email the NHW Liaison Officer: 61170@kent.police.uk

What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is a partnership between the police, community safety departments, and above all, individuals and families who wish to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

Each scheme has a coordinator – it is their responsibility to act as the main point of contact within their scheme, to share information and to encourage members to circulate and implement crime prevention advice (provided by the police) and report suspicious incidents.                       

NHW scheme objectives include:

•         Reducing crime and the opportunities for crime
•         Helping and reassuring those who live in fear of crime
•         An increased sense of community.
•         Helping to improve the local environment

Register a new scheme

Email: 61170@kent.police.uk

A NHW scheme doesn’t have to take up much time and can cover just the street/road/close you live in, or a whole village! It’s completely up to the coordinator.

When you have registered an interest in setting up a scheme, your NHW Liaison Officer will provide you with a welcome pack with some suggestions on how to get started.

You will receive:

•         A template NHW invitation to distribute to local households
•         A template welcome letter for new members
•         A NHW Members Guide
•         Top tips for running a NHW scheme
•         How to set up a NHW WhatsApp group
