Cover watch

We are now enabling social media based cover watches additional to the street based watches. Cover watches typically cover big geographical areas.

In Tower Hamlets the borough is divided into 20 SNT Ward areas. Coordinators are invited to apply for permission to start a cover watch for their ward area. you need to be registered on Ourwatch and your cover-watch area will be mapped there. However, you sign up your membership on the social media platform itself.
