WELCOME

Dear Neighbour,

This non-commercial website provides some advice on basic inexpensive security precautions that you could take to help reduce the likelihood of crime occurring in your area. It doesn't matter if you are a house owner or a renter, some minor work can make a big difference.

In addition, the website provides regular updates on other crime related issues, home and personal safety information from various sources.

I hope that you find it of use now and in the future. Why not place it in the "Favourites" of your web browser !

REMEMBER........BEING AWARE, PREVENTS CRIME

Regards

The Editor


 

ABOUT THE WEBSITE

The background to the website goes back to Christmas 2006. One of my neighbours was burgled. The local Safer Neighbourhood Team was knocking on doors asking residents if they had seen anything or if we had experienced any problems. This started me thinking about what I could do for myself and my local community. My idea was a virtual Neighbourhood Watch, something that people could access at their leisure.

Our area used to have an active Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) in previous years and my Wife had assisted one of the Wardens. For several years there appeared to be inactivity of the local NHW so I contacted the Metropolitan Police asking about how I would go about setting up a new one. After a short period I was contacted by the Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) Sargeant and we arranged a meeting. At the meeting I was informed that the local NHW was still in operation for my area. After some discussion about how I could help we hit upon the idea that the website could become a resource for my Ward.

Before this meeting the name for the website had already been determined, contracted and paid for. As my original expectation was for the website to cover three roads including my own I though it apt that it be called "three_roads_in_enfield". After the meeting the definition could be any three roads within the borough.

From that day the website has grown from consisiting of 6 pages to 45. The contents range from home to computer security; telephone numbers and website links to governmental and charitable services, ward summaries of committed crime from the London Crime Map, SNT Newsletter and articles on crime and prevention. Finally, the Ladysmith Neighbourhood Watch also supplied me with their regular newsletter for display on the website.

The readership has grown and the news content covers more than just the Enfield geographic area. Due to these changes there was a need to change the websites name. As the website was developed in Enfield a section will remain on the website dedicated to that area.

Even though the www.threeroadsinenfield.org website has not reached 70 years of age, it is to be retired !
It is now replaced by www.uaware.org.uk
