New Lookers Community Policing




The Country Eye App is a rural crime reporting system that is already available to be downloaded onto iPhone or Android type mobile phones. Through the Fifth Continent project, there is funding available to make some updates to the current format. Communities on the Marsh will be encouraged to make use of this App to report rural crime. There will also be awareness workshops available so that the residents are able to find out about how they can be involved in community safety and preserving the heritage of their area.

New Lookers Community Policing contributes to Rediscover project theme.


There will be opportunities for people to become Country Eye volunteers for the Romney Marsh area. These volunteers would support the current County Eye system in place.
