TODAY (Monday) sees the start of National Neighbourhood Watch Week, and residents from Times Territory are being invited to join in.

Events are being held across Hertfordshire throughout the week, to encourage more people to sign up to their local neighbourhood watch.

Neighbourhood Watch project officer David Aylett said: "We're celebrating Neighbourhood Watch because it is a brilliant tool in helping to keep the county safe and is instrumental in passing vital information to the police.

"It is about looking out for one another and making sure we can beat criminals and learn about how to protect ourselves from crime."

"I would encourage everyone to come along to their local events and see what Neighbourhood Watch is all about and join up if you're not already a member."
