32 Types of Watch Schemes



The OWL Crime and Communication system currently supports over 55 different schemes in Wales & England. Whether they are called watches, groups, lists, or associations, it doesn’t matter to OWL; they each have a different purpose and interest. OWL schemes have been expanded considerably over the years, as police forces and communities are inspired to develop new ones.



32 different types of watch schemes are currently supported in Flintshire and Wrexham. The complete list is available below.
