Perth & Kinross Community Watch is part of the Neighbourhood Watch Scotland network and will operate specifically to support local residents, businesses and farms from Monday to Friday, during office hours. One of the main aims of the scheme is to improve communications between the local community, police and other Community Safety Partnership agencies working in the area. Sharing information and advice can help prevent crimes, making the gathering of information simpler and help link together a community spread across a wide geographic area.
There are a number of neighbourhood watch groups across the locality.
