In 1964, 28-year-old Kitty Genovese was stabbed in New York outside her apartment. Two weeks after the murder it was rumoured that 38 witnesses saw or heard the attack, but none of them called the police or came to her aid.
This motivated a community response and the very first Neighbourhood Watch scheme was set up in New York, and in 1982 the first UK scheme was set up in Mollington, Cheshire.
From there we grew from strength to strength. Neighbourhood Watch representatives formed local, and wider, structured groups.

In 2007, with the support of the police and the Home Office, the umbrella organisation for the movement, now known as Neighbourhood Watch Network, was established. Our focus was on building local Neighbourhood Watch community groups which liaised with the Police and focused on reducing burglary and other home and personal crimes.

Today we live in un-predictable and ever-changing times. With the transformation on how people use the internet, communities are no longer restricted to geographical locations, and crime has taken on new forms.
To ensure we remain relevant when the pace of change is faster than at any time in our past we have taken steps to ensure Neighbourhood Watch as a charity is in a strong and trusted position to support Neighbourhood Watch groups and individuals who wish to wish to build connected and resilient communities to reduce crime in all its shapes and forms across England and Wales.
Since 2016 we have modernised our logo, changed our name to Neighbourhood Watch Network, introduced inspiration pages for our members, developed partnerships that help our members be at the forefront of preventing crime, and are now in the process of launching a brand-new website to deliver easy to find and engaging toolkits, resources, campaigns and news to our supporters.

We are supporting communities with knowledge and tools to tackle not only traditional crimes but also future crimes.
