CHURCH WATCH!

ON Sunday the 24 June 2007, Inspector Martin Melia, the Merseyside Police Neighbourhood Watch Inspector, addressed a meeting in St Luke’s Church’s meeting room in Formby.

The audience comprised members of the church congregation and residents of the adjacent area concerned with Church Watch, an extension of the Home Watch schemes.

Inspector Melia gave some cogent facts about crime in the present day and especially in this area, the need for increased vigilance and the role of Home Watch and Church Watch schemes in reducing its effects.

He alluded to leaflet’s 10 good reasons for belonging… issued by the Homewatch Association, which is a volunteer body set up to co-ordinate information between local police and individual scheme members. Among these 10 reasons are the statistics that:- “1 in every 30 households in Great Britain can expect to be burgled at some time” but “in Homewatch areas only 1 in 300 is targeted.”

Homewatch/Churchwatch signs signal to burglars that the area is security conscious, therefore less attractive.

Schemes also bring community spirit back into neighbourhoods. He referred to Liverpool’s Bishop James’ remarks that a neighbourhood is only a collection of buildings; it only becomes a community when people begin to care.

The Homewatch co-ordinator, Mrs Jeanette Rimmer and the Chairman David Rimmer were introduced and they expounded various measures which can be taken to increase awareness of and to reduce vulnerability to crime.

They also demonstrated various devices, which may be employed to help.

The presentation was a salutary experience and gave much food for thought.

Anyone interested in forming a local Homewatch or Churchwatch scheme should get in touch with their local Homewatch co-ordinator or call at a local Police Station.

Greater vigilance can pay dividends and there are real benefits to gain from the backing of the Homewatch Association, which can offer valuable assistance in setting up such schemes.
