Nestling between the M1 and M25 motorways where they join near St Albans in Hertfordshire, it is one of the first villages to have all roads covered by a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
Signs are displayed at Village entrances to inform visitors that they are entering a Neighbourhood Watch Village. These were made by Saunders Signs of Bricket Wood.
Houses display yellow cards with information for callers to the door. The card contains the following text:
When door-to-door callers arrive in the village it is not long before the Neighbourhood Watch communication links are activated. The information is relayed to the Police, who then check the caller's credentials. This has led to a number of such callers being ejected from the Village and has reduced the number of these unwanted callers.
The St Albans Police have set-up an automatic system to alert co-ordinators of any criminal or suspect activity in the local area. A message is recorded on their voicemail system, which then makes telephone calls to individual street co-ordinators, and plays them the message. This provides a method of disseminating information quickly throughout the Village.
