You may remember the days when you were advised to mark your property with your postcode using an ultra-violet pen. Well, marking your property is still sound advice however modern technology has turned this simple concept into a leading crime fighting deterrent through the use of forensic marking.
We all wish to feel safe and secure in our homes. To be a victim of housebreaking is still a relatively rare occurrence however for those who have been a victim it can sometimes have a life changing effect. Working along with its partners Neighbourhood Watch Scotland aim to provide the best information to increase the safety and security of your home and valued belongings.
West Dunbartonshire Council serves 91,000 residents and a lively business community in an area stretching from the banks of Loch Lomond to the shores of the Clyde.
Neighbourhood Watch Scotland staff have also just recently set up a Neighbourhood ALERT Scottish Users Group which met for an inaugural Meeting at SGN, Apex House, Edinburgh on 31 January 2017.
As part of one of the main programmes being undertaken by Neighbourhood Watch Scotland we are, in conjunction with Police Scotland and other partners, continuing to develop Rural Watch Scotland as an extension of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland.
