Wat is buurtpreventie ?
Despite the continuous effort of police, the number of break-ins, thefts, and destructions still rises. This results in enormous damage to personal items and annoyance, concern, and sometimes even fear.
The goal of the neighborhood watch is for residents and the police could work together to prevent thieves, burglars, and destroyers from striking. You can do this by paying extra attention and being more involved in your street, flat, or neighborhood. Your and others' experiences can help the police and residents be up-to-date on the neighborhood's developments. This way, you get the possibility to take precautionary measures while the police handle it into account in their daily work.
A neighborhood watch is meant for neighborhoods where criminality problems arise frequently or in specific periods, such as winters and holidays. A big part of the residents must be willing to do something about it with the police. Otherwise, the neighborhood watch cannot start/continue to exist. A neighborhood watch does not cost much in terms of time and effort, but it can result in a nicer, safer, and quieter neighborhood.
A neighborhood watch: Do you participate?
You might have seen them around; the volunteers of the neighborhood watch with their yellow jackets on. These are just residents who might be your neighbors, and they are the eyes and ears of the police and city surveillance and contribute to the safety and livability of the neighborhood. These contributions are the most important motivation for residents to participate in a neighborhood watch. The watch walks around in groups of at least two people through the area.
Buurtpreventie is in zo?n 50 wijken van Eindhoven actief. Er werken ruim 1.500 vrijwilligers mee. Zij lopen op wisselende dagen en tijden in groepjes vaan minimaal 2 personen ongeveer een uurtje door de wijk. Ze signaleren en rapporteren zaken op gebied van schoon, heel en veilig en geven deze door aan de gemeente en politie. De meldingen worden zo snel mogelijk opgepakt. Buurtpreventie heeft een zichtbaar effect in de wijken waar zij actief is.
Due to the effort of the watch, the number of break-ins and nuisance decreased drastically in the last few years. Because the neighborhood is still growing, we are looking for more neighborhood watchers. They can start their rounds after following the training given and sponsored by the municipality of Eindhoven.
Advantages of the neighborhood watch are:
- You are helping to make the neighborhood safer
- You get to know people
- You get to know the neighborhood
- You can enjoy the outdoors

What is the neighborhood watch not?
Buurtpreventie heeft dus alles te maken om voor uw eigen belang en dat van uw directe omgeving ogen en oren open te houden. Bedenk wel dat het niet de bedoeling is ?controle? uit te oefenen of inbreuk te maken op het priv leven van anderen. Het is dus niet de bedoeling om burgerpatrouilles te organiseren.

What does a neighborhood watch team??
The neighborhood watch team's task is to be actively involved, inform, motivate and mobilize residents.
- Being involved with the neighborhood to increase solidarity.
- Informeren over buurtpreventiezaken, buurtveiligheid en ?preventie en wat men als buurtbewoners zelf kan doen om inbraak, diefstal, overlast en vandalisme te voorkomen (zoals: laat geen spullen zichtbaar in de auto achter, niet de radio/frontje in de auto achterlaten of het raam open laten staan);
- To motivate to actively look around to see what happens on the street (starting point is that residents know best what is right in the neighborhood and what is not).
- To mobilize residents to report events to the police and/or to the municipality (14-040) and alarm the police when something suspicious happens. Making a digital declaration is essential, and when it is not reported, it cannot be solved.
Where does the neighborhood watch make its rounds??
De coördinatoren van Buurtpreventie Blixembosch werken met een schema waarbij gecoördineerd wordt wie in welk gebied zijn ronde doet, zodat uiteindelijk onze wijk in alle straten op meerdere dagen en momenten in de week wordt afgedekt door een groep alerte en actieve vrijwilligers.
Talk about it.
The watch should be interesting and ask the effort of as many residents as possible. Talk about it with your neighbors, friends who live in your street or surroundings about how they think about it and if they are interested in participating in our watch.
