Streetwatchers reclaim the streets in Weyhe

Costs and savings

The local council has supported and funded the Streetwatcher Scheme from the very start. In the first year, it gave about €9300 for equipment, training and a small payment for the volunteers. Since then, the Streetwatcher Scheme has only required €6800 per year.

On the savings side, the expenditure needed to repair damage to public places and facilities resulting from vandalism has been reduced. It is estimated that about €15000 has been saved since 2009 due to this fall in vandalism.
