Role of a Neighbourhood Support Group Contact Person

The Contact Person acts as a contact point for sharing information within their Neighbourhood Support Group and for passing on matters of importance to the wider Neighbourhood Support network and the police. The Contact Person does not have to be able to “see every house” and is not to be called instead of the police or if an incident is occurring that needs immediate police attention. 

Remember to appoint a second or third person as deputies who can carry out the role in the absence of the Contact Person. 

With many areas utilising computers for passing on information, it is a good idea to select as a Contact Person someone who is on e-mail and for that person to be responsible for forward appropriate emails.
