Avon & Somerset Neighbourhood Watch Association (ASNWA)
Visit ASNWA Website
The Avon and Somerset Neighbourhood Watch Association (ASNWA) will sit between the Avon & Somerset Police Force and the local Neighbourhood Watch (NW) across the whole of the A&S Police force area. The ASNWA will also be the link to the National Neighbourhood Watch. The intention is that these new associations will be will be set up across England & Wales for each police force area.
The Association will be the ‘single point of contact and consultation’ for the Constabulary and NW across Avon and Somerset. As a consequence the Nailsea NW will have to be part of the new Association and therefore our contact will be with Association and not the police for NW matters. The aim is to provide support to the membership and to work with the police to further develop the role of the NW and make it more effective and proactive, helping to reduce crime and fraud and bring communities together to help each other.
The ASNWA has been fully constituted with agreements with the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable of the Avon and Somerset police. It was formally launched on 7th October 2017 with the first AGM to elect the positions of Chair/Deputy Chair/ Secretary and Treasurer. For current details visit their website.
