We are thrilled that you are part of our Neighbourhood Watch community.

We offer a wide variety of material to guide you through your journey with Neighbourhood Watch. Our material covers crime prevention advice, merchandise, social media instructions, observational videos and links to other relevant websites and information.
Prevent a Crime
One of our aims is to encourage people to increase their personal and home security.
As with all types of crime, prevention is much better than the cure. Taking simple measures can greatly reduce your chances of being a victim of crime.
We offer a wide range of resources covering a number of crime types offering guidance on prevention techniques. Download today and share with your neighbours.
Report a Crime
Active Neighbourhood Watch networks know their neighbourhoods and are observant to the comings and goings of their local environment. Being actively aware in your neighbourhood is a great crime prevention tool. Sharing information with Police is important.
Report any crime or suspicious activity to Police - no matter how insignificant you believe it is. Your information may be the missing piece the Police require to identify an offender.
If you see something, say something.

You are already involved!
Participating in Neighbourhood Watch is easy. It is as simple as promoting the Neighbourhood Watch philosophy in your neighbourhood. Our engagement model is a participatory one. It is simply creating local networks of neighbours who communicate with each other, share information with each other and Police and look out for each other.
We have a range of resources available for you and your neighbours to display that you promote the philosophy.
There is no joining required. By simply knowing your neighbours, you are already involved in promoting Neighbourhood Watch in your neighbourhood.
It is important to share information with your neighbours. Knowledge is an effective crime prevention tool. By sharing information with your neighbours and Police helps raise awareness and connects a neighbourhood.
All information on suspicious and criminal behaviour should be shared with Police. Police can not respond to community problems if they are not made aware of them. If your instinct is telling you something doesn't feel right - it probably isn't. It is important not to reply on your neighbours to report on your behalf. Your neighbours can assist you to report but the information should be yours. If more than one neighbour has information to share with Police, then separate reports to Police should be made. Everyone's account will be different and it is this difference that could provide Police a vital detail they need to help identify a criminal or solve a crime.
Police share information using a variety of methods.
Follow your local Police district on Facebook and/or Twitter.
Follow WA Police Force on Facebook.
Police also share information on the radio and local community newspapers.
If you are not on social media, connect with your neighbours who can keep you informed on important issues.
There are a range of resources available to build connections between neighbours and promote the Neighbourhood Watch philosophy within a street.
These resources are available in our "Resource" section. The popular items include Bin Stickers, Magnets and Window Stickers.
Send us an email with your resource requests and we will send them out to you.
