In South Warwickshire we are looking for people to become Street Champions. The local champs deliver community safety leaflets and advice together with information on Neighbourhood Watch and details of how to join to their neighbours. This action will normally be take place within 24 hours of a burglary being reported in the Champion’s own street.
Following the recent promotion of the initiative by Warwickshire County Council in partnership with Neighbourhood Watch, some 90 volunteers for the role of Street Champion in South Warwickshire have come forward so far.
The recruitment drive will continue via local media and the Neighbourhood Watch Community Alert Programme.
Anyone living in South Warwickshire wishing to volunteer to act as Champion for their street or to find out more should contact Paul Ledden from Warwickshire County Council Community Safety Team email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01926 412261.
