Police officer appeals for help to relaunch Neighbourhood Watch in Mountsorrel
A village beat officer has urged people on his patch to help him revitalise its Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
Pc Ian Mundy hopes to find a volunteer to co-ordinate or be members of the crime-fighting scheme in Mountsorrel.
He would also like to hear from people who are already in scheme in the village to draw up an up to date list of contacts.
He said: “It doesn’t take a great deal of time to run a scheme but the benefits can be enormous, particularly in terms of bringing communities closer together by looking out for each other and reporting suspicious behaviour.

“Members receive details of crimes in their areas, have access to crime prevention literature and stickers and things such as UV pens for marking property.
“Being part of a scheme strengthens links with local police officers and helps to reduce crime by sharing information and raising awareness of any crime issues.
“I am really keen to find volunteers willing to coordinate a scheme because I think it would be really good for Mountsorrel.”
