The Arboleas neighbourhood watch scheme covers the whole area under the control of the Ayuntamiento de Arboleas – The Arboleas Town Hall.  The scheme is divided into Barriadas (neighbourhoods) each of which are administered by a local coordinator.  Information of illegal or suspicious activity is obtained from members and the local police; this is then passed on to members via email.

Anybody who owns or rents a property that is located within the Arboleas Town Hall catchment area is eligible and invited to join the scheme.  This can easily be done by email.

The following Barriadas currently have schemes.  A scheme can easily be started up in any of the other Barriadas.

In summary some of the key objectives of Neighbourhood Watch are

  • To prevent crime by improving security, increasing vigilance, creating and maintaining a caring community and reducing opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness.
  • To reduce undue fear of crime by providing accurate information about risks and by promoting a sense of security and community spirit, particularly amongst the more vulnerable members of the community.
  • To improve police/community liaison by providing effective communications through Neighbourhood Watch messaging systems which warn Coordinators of local crime trends/threats.
