Neighbourhood Watch aims to reduce preventable crime in our neighbourhoods by raising awareness of crime concerns, providing education in crime prevention and encouraging communication between neighbours and the Police.

  • Create crime prevention resources
  • Raise awareness of crime concerns and provide education how to address them
  • Encourage connections between neighbours
  • Encourage the sharing of information to Police

CREATE CRIME PREVENTION RESOURCES

‚ÄčNeighbourhood Watch and WA Police Force develop a range of resources that help residents stay safe, secure their property and feel safer in our communities.

RAISE AWARENESS AND EDUCATE OUR COMMUNITIES ABOUT CRIME PREVENTION

Educating our community is an important strategy in crime prevention.  Residents who know what actions they can take to reduce their risk of crime and how they can enhance neighbourhood safety is the core of a safer community.  By reminding residents that a problem exists and how they can address the program, encourages them to take action.

ENCOURAGE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN NEIGHBOURS

Knowing your neighbours and your neighbourhood helps you recognise suspicious activity and criminal activity.  By sharing information with your neighbours helps raise awareness and connects a neighbourhood.  You and your neighbours are the extra eyes and ears  for the Police in your street, knowing your neighbours are looking out for you and your family can improve a neighbourhoods sense of safety.

ENCOURAGE THE SHARING OF INFORMATION TO POLICE

Police can not respond to community concerns if they are not aware of them.  Neighbourhood Watch provides information on how to report, where to report and what to report to Police.



Neighbourhood Watch encourages connections between neighbours to:

  • Look out for each other
  • Help each other
  • Keep an eye on local spaces
  • Share information with each other and Police
