|Post subject:||From OWL at year end|
As the year draws to a close may I on behalf of all involved in the administration of Hillingdon Neighbourhood Watch, from our important road coordinators through to our HQ volunteer staff based at Ruislip Police Station wish all our residents and Police officers and support staff across the Borough, a safe and Happy Christmas and thank you all for supporting HNW.
The introduction of Online Watch Link (OWL) around six months ago was a huge logistical challenge and a steep learning curve for everyone involved.
The original import of residents was from the Smartwater initiative but across Hillingdon the numbers able to be contacted by e -mail which is the important element for receiving important messages was relatively low.
Its pleasing to report that we now have over 10,500 households receiving alerts and around 18,000 overall being contactable by the Police .
The Hillingdon CCTV Watch is now gaining traction, particularly following the "Ring" doorbell camera initiative and around 200 additional residents have signed up in the last 6 weeks. (The database can ONLY be seen by Police officers and two security cleared members of HNW)
Some good results are coming in from imagery as well, and soon I hope to be able to comment further.
In closing, could I ask that each person on OWL speaks to a neighbour and encourage them to join up. By all working together we will reduce crime & make a difference and Hillingdon a safer place in which to live and work..
With Warmest wishes to you all.
On behalf of all our team, thank you, stay safe.
