Homewatch

The Sutton Poyntz Homewatch group was formed in 2008 ago to replace a rather dormant Neighbourhood Watch scheme. The aim of Homewatch is for residents to provide security support to their neighbours, to receive security and home protection advice from the Police and to be informed, via an information cascade system, of matters affecting the local area and factors having wider security implications.

The village is split in to several manageable areas and each area is administered by a volunteer local resident who ensures this detail is made known to the Homewatch members (residents).

The group comes within the Radipole and Preston Safer Neighbourhood Watch scheme that is run from the Dorset Police headquarters. The local watch team comprising a Police Sergeant, Police Constable and a Police Community Support Officer manage security and police responsibilities within their domain.

The village Homewatch co-coordinator is Peter Jones.
