Area Co- ordinator
The Area Co-ordinator is the next level in the NHW network and acts as the focal point for around 8 to 10 Schemes.
Their existence really makes a difference in the ability of the Police and the NHW Association to communicate efficiently with all NHW members.
Without them, County-wide NHW communications would have to go direct to all 4500 or so Scheme Co-ordinators (SCs). The basic tasks asked of ACs are as follows:-
Keep an up-to-date list of their SC's contact details and inform their Police NHW Liaison Officer (NWLO) of any changes
Pass on information e.g. NHW Newsletters and warnings about crime to their NPT
Pass on any ideas, comments or concerns from their SCs to NWLO
Register as a member of the W&SNHW Association to facilitate communication and obtain Public Liability Insurance cover for Scheme members when on NHW business
These tasks will be facilitated by the ACs attendance at meetings.
Area Co-ordinator Additional Possibilities
Arrange regular meetings of their Scheme Co-ordinators
Help to find new or replacement Scheme Co-ordinators
Keep abreast of local crime, filter information and pass it to the NPT
Provide support to help their Scheme Co- ordinators develop & implement their ideas Attend meetings of ACs and the CACs
Liase with neighbouring Area Co- ordinators
Develop an effective means of communication for gathering and disseminating information
Ideally using a cascade system based on telephone or personal contact (NB. E- mail can be used without the need for a cascade approach).
Represent Schemes at e.g. local Police forums/briefings and in the Association
