Neighbourhood Watch is a program to help neighbours watch out for neighbours, to increase safety and reduce crime. Neighbourhood Watch works by getting to know your neighbours, and encouraging the reporting of suspicious activity to Police
How to get involved with Neighbourhood Watch
You do not have to join a Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) team to get involved. You can participate in the program just by observing, acknowledging, reporting and sharing suspicious activity. Register for ewatch, to stay connected and keep informed on local matters. ewatch is an email based system that keeps you connected to your local police and council.
To be an active Neighbourhood Watch volunteer, join your local Neighbourhood Watch group. Upon registering, you will receive a photo ID card, and an information and resource pack containing crime prevention information, property marking pens, and NHW signage stickers.
