schemes have different characteristics, depending on
the area in which they are situated and their objectives.

organised and run in a non-discriminatory manner at
local, area and county level.

in a neighbourhood and the local police. It aims to

and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved
home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting
of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering
a community spirit.
