Napton Neighbourhood Watch have a great team of 22 co-ordinators covering all of the near 400 households in Napton. We aim to cascade important crime alerts into every letter box when necessary. This is usually to warn of a recent burglary or incident in the village or nearby, and often used to assist the Police by asking for help if anything relevant is spotted. Don’t forget to call the Police on 101 if you witness any suspicious activity, if you see doorstep pedlars in the area, if your car has been stolen, your property damaged, to report a minor traffic collision or if you suspect drug use in your area. 999 is the Police Emergency Number to be used only when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
