- Reduce / prevent local crime
- Reduce fear of crime
- Address issues relating to antisocial behaviour
- Create safer neighbourhoods
- Build community spirit and cohesion
- Reassure members of the public
- Assist in the detection and apprehension of criminals through members providing information to the police
- Improve quality of life and the local environment
Resources to get started.
Being involved in Neighbourhood Watch builds stronger and safer neighbourhoods and brings people together, which is where it's power comes from.
What is happening? What did you observe? Do you remember what you saw? A lot of what you see and hear is important information for WA Police Force.
Watch our observational videos to assist you in determining what is suspicious behaviour.

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
