The aim of Bourn Neighbourhood Watch is to improve communication between both residents and the local police in order to mount the most effective and rapid response to local crime.
In order to be successful we need as much participation from local villagers as possible, with contact details so that we can keep everyone informed about any incidents as quickly as possible.
The village is split into a number of areas with each one being managed by a 'coordinator' who is responsible for informing their residents about any crime and to feedback any details of crime occurring.
The most efficient way of passing on this information is by email so please could any new residents contact their relevant coordinator below, to ensure that they are kept informed.

For those who are not on email, please contact Rae Byrne on 01954 718555. Likewise if you are unsure of which coordinator to contact.
If an incident needs immediate attention you should dial 999 or use the police non emergency number as appropriate (now 101, which will put you through to your local police station). Do not contact your coordinator at that point. (But please inform them later so we can let other residents know!). If however what you see is non urgent and may provide information to help police with an investigation then please pass it on to the coordinator.
The police are very supportive of this initiative as it makes their job much easier and is proven to reduce crime. I do hope that you are able to support us to make our village safer for everyone!
