A new scheme combining efforts of the local police and residents is appealing for extra volunteers.
Community Watch has been operational in Street for three months, working to tackle antisocial behaviour and to help reduce the fear of crime.
Volunteers, who work in pairs, have been called the 'eyes and ears' of the local beat officers.
The scheme is modelled on a similar scheme which has been running successfully in South Gloucestershire for a number of years.

Three volunteers have already joined the scheme and carry out regular patrols in the area. They also attend events and activities and provide advice and information on crime prevention.
They have been provided with special training as well as high-visibility jackets and a short-wave radio to keep in contact with the local police officers who are out patrolling the same beat area.
Community Watch volunteer David Atkins said: "Increasingly towns and villages are being asked to help themselves through the efforts of community groups and we want to develop Community Watch in Street by working with the local police team.
"Local residents carry out safe, highly-visible and non-confrontational patrolling in our community which we hope will lead to increased levels of confidence among residents and a reduction in the fear of crime."
