A SCHEME dubbed the neighbourhood watch on water has been launched to help combat crime on Cambridgeshire's waterways.
The Cambridgeshire Boat Watch scheme is an initiative between the Environment Agency, Cambridgeshire Police, the Great Ouse Boating Association and the Association of Nene River Clubs to reduce crime on the water.
Under the crime-fighting initiative boaters on the River Nene and Ouse will be encouraged to display a Boat Watch sticker and to report all incidents of boat crime to police.
Cambridgeshire Police will then collate all incidents reported under the Boat Watch banner and distribute the information via email or text messages to registered Boat Watch members.
