Have you ever wanted to be part of a neighbourhood watch group and receive regular communications from your local police? Look no further than our local service, Owl (Online Watch Link).

You can sign up for free at owl.co.uk and receive up-to-date crime prevention, ward crime

stats, local police meet-ups and much more from your local police officers. You can also reply to the messages via email, directly to your local team, so you can be assured of a line of contact.

If you want to join a neighbourhood watch then why not join Owl and start your own online watch. You can get your neighbours signed up to Owl and grow your watch, become a co-ordinator for your watch and be able to message your team via emails regarding local activity.

When you become a co-ordinator you will also get an Owl neighbourhood watch window sticker for you and your watch members when they sign up. This will help showcase your road as a neighbourhood watch area and hopefully deter criminals.

You can also join ‘CCTV watch’, if you have CCTV on your property that you are happy for police to know about and use for the detection of crime. You can even join ‘dog watch’, designed for anyone who owns a dog and would like up-to-date messages about any criminal activities regarding dogs.

If you are a business you can join ‘business watch’ and receive messages regarding crime prevention for your physical business and any criminal activity to be aware of.

Owl is now Enfield police’s go-to website for keeping you informed about what is happening on your ward and across your borough, so don’t delay, sign up today and be part of policing for the future!
