Policing and Neighbourhood Watch

Sussex Police

The Parish lies within the Sussex Police area. For full details visit their website.

Local Policing
Structural changes within Sussex Police occurred in 2016 which means that the village no longer has a designated policing team. If you have any concerns, please report directly to the police via their website, 101 for non-emergency situations or 999 in an emergency.

Your Community Concerns
As a Parish Council we liaise closely and report any concerns. The police have requested that residents witnessing crime, as well as acts of vandalism or any other antisocial behaviour in the village, contact the police immediately on the non-emergency number 101. The information will be treated in the strictest confidence. It is only by reporting these incidents that the police will be able to act.

Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch encourages people to work together to make their community safer and a more pleasant place in which to live. It aims to help people to protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit. This is done by not only involving members of the community but establishing a close link with the police, as well as local authorities, and other voluntary organisations.

Village Scheme
The scheme in Wisborough Green is now well established with an Area Coordinator and Road Coordinators in most parts of the village. The Village Coordinator maintains a close link with the NHW office in Chichester, receiving regular newsletters and more specific or urgent information by telephone. This information is passed onto the Road Co-ordinators for distribution in their area. If you have any further enquiries, would like to be involved in the village scheme or would like to make contact with your Road Coordinator, please contact the Village Coordinator, Mrs Priscilla Pinkham, on 01403 700114. Please report any incidents directly to Priscilla so that she can email details to spread the word more quickly.
