Once you have created an account on the Neighbourhood Alert system for receiving the Alert messages, you are also able to register a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your area, if you wish.
You can do this by accessing your account either from: https://members.ourwatchmember.org.uk/ or from members.YOURSITENAMEHERE, inserting your local site name where required. You can then navigate to Neighbourhood Watch Tools > join or create schemes, or scroll down to below your details, as below, to view the scheme options.
From here you can either join an existing scheme that you are within the area of, or create a new scheme for your area.
By opting to create a new scheme, you must then opt to become a full member of Neighbourhood Watch as below, though this is not required for joining an existing scheme.
You can then input the details for your scheme, as below:
For mapping the scheme's area you can click on the map to create points until you have an enclosed shape that encompasses your scheme area. On this map you will also see grey outlines of any existing schemes in your area. You can then use 'Save Data' to save your scheme's details.
Once you have then created your scheme, you will automatically be added as the 'Main Coordinator' for the scheme. You can then see the scheme's details from your 'Details' page in your account, or from: Neighbourhood Watch Tools > Manage schemes.
When you have initially added your scheme, you will see that this is marked as 'Awaiting Approval' to see the details of what this means, and how this can be changed, see the guide here.
