The Heyfords have an active Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
In 1983, Northamptonshire Police set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme which was seen as one of the first in the country. Five years later, in 1988, the Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Watch Association was formed to establish and run the scheme as an independent organisation.
The purpose of the Scheme is to protect the vulnerable and elderly, as well as to safeguard property.

In addition to the long standing traditional Neighbourhood Watch scheme, a new informal and unofficial Nether Heyford Neighbourhood Watch Facebook group was established in spring 2018. Its aim to notify people of incidents which are happening in and around Nether and Upper Heyford. The group now has over 300 members with 10 volunteer moderators from the village. It is hoped that it will continue to grow and keep the community up to date while on the move.
Villagers plugged into Facebook are encouraged to join the group and membership is normally approved within a few hours.
