Neighbourhood Watch

Linton Parish Council Police Neighbrhood Watch

A message from the Linton Co-ordinator, Pat Burden:


Linton Neighbourhood Watch


Linton Neighbourhood Watch Scheme has operated for a number of years. It is an active scheme and it needs your support. Please do join the Scheme – it’s free, it’s easy to join, and there are real benefits for members.

The Neighbourhood watch scheme will be more effective, and will be listened to more sympathetically, the more members we have.

Although Neighbourhood Watch is not perhaps always seen as glamorous work, it is a very valuable and rewarding activity and contributes to the Linton Community and to many of its residents in a practical and important way. Why not give something back to Linton?



 How To Join


Want to receive email alerts, whenever a crime is reported locally, often the same day?

Want cheaper home insurance?

Want to receive information updates regularly?

Want to purchase security related items at a subsidised cost?

All Linton residents are encouraged to join the Scheme – it’s free!
