Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is a program to help neighbours look 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.

To be an active Neighbourhood Watch volunteer, join your local Neighbourhood Watch group opens in a new window. 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.
