What is a Neighbourhood Watch ?

A neighbourhood watch program is a group of people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer by working together and in conjunction with local law enforcement to reduce crime and improve their quality of life.

Neighbourhood watch groups have regular meetings to plan how they will accomplish their specific goals and leaders with assigned responsibilities.


Neighbourhood watch empowers citizens and communities to become active in emergency preparedness, as well as the fight against crime and community disasters.

Why is it needed?

You and your neighbours are in a position to observe and report anything of a suspicious nature to Police.

For example, as we go about our daily routines, we have the opportunity to casually observe the neighbourhood.  Such observations may be useful in keeping children away from vacant houses, reporting abandoned cars, or alerting neighbours and police to suspicious persons in the area.  These examples are few, but it is important to realise that criminals find it difficult to operate in areas where people take an active role in preventing crime.

How does it work?


Neighbourhood Watch works through mutual cooperation and communication between neighbours.   

Neighbourhood Watch asks you to be the eyes of ears for your neighbours, to be more involved with your neighbours and their property by becoming more aware and alert to the activity in your imme

diate residential area.

For Neighbourhood Watch to be totally effective, each resident must take an active role in home security improvement and observation.
