The relationship between the Co-ordinator and the police will be of critical importance to the long-term success of each scheme.Communications:Proper communications is essential to the long-term success of any Neighbourhood Watch scheme. Communications between the police, the Community Safety Co-ordinator, the local community andother agencies is crucial in maintaining links and identifying opportunities for all parties.Police support to Neighbourhood Watch:A key role for police within each district is to support the concept of Neighbourhood Watch and to envourage its development within each community.

The role and functions of the Community Safety Sergeant is considered to be the most appropriate resource to fulfil this role.
