CREATE CRIME PREVENTION RESOURCES
Neighbourhood 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
