About Neighbourhood Watch
Creating a safe and friendly environment where crime is less likely to happen.
The objective of Neighbourhood Watch is for neighbours to work together to prevent crime.
By increasing the number of people working together to increase the level of supervision of homes and their environment can be an effective means of combating burglary, theft and vandalism.
Neighbourhood Watch encourages people to take an active role in their community and their own safety to reduce opportunities for crime to happen.
What we do
The main function of Neighbourhood Watch is based on creating a local network of neighbours who:
Help each other
Make each other feel safe
Look after shared places
Keep their street safe

Some common questions about Neighbourhood Watch
The best way to get involved is simply by getting to know your neighbours.
You can start the conversation with our "Knock Knock" cards or by starting a "What's App" group.
We have resources that can help with these introductions on our "Resources" page.
Once you've created your network keep communicating and connect as a community.
Perhaps you could hold an information session where you can distribute NHW and crime prevention materials or just hold a community BBQ or picnic in your street.
You can contact us for further assistance- even your local council can help out :)
There are volunteering opportunities with established NHW groups in the Perth metro area and in regional WA.
There are also participation groups that spread the word about Neighbourhood Watch and connect locally
