Towards the Implementation of an Internet-based Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Arief, Budi, Greathead, David, Coventry, Lynne, van Moorsel, Aad (2011) Towards the Implementation of an Internet-based Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. In: 3rd International Conference on Computational Aspects of Social Networks (CASoN), 19-22 October 2011, Salamanca, Spain. (KAR id:58713)


In this paper we discuss the current state of our work regarding the development and planned in-situ testing of a computer-based system to enhance community relations through the Neighbourhood Watch scheme. The system is intended for use in a community to help the residents interact with each other more easily and to encourage the reporting of suspicious behaviour or crime. We discuss some details of the system and how we plan to test it in the field using an iterative process. We also discuss the possible implications of the work for the future.
