The week marks the inaugural National Neighbourhood Watch Week, as part of a campaign designed to raise awareness about reducing local crime and fear of crime through community engagement.
The community-based organisation will be promoting its services and how people can get more involved from October 3 to 9, with the support WA Police.
Neighbourhood Watch Australasia president and Neighbourhood Watch State director Bernie Durkin said Neighbourhood Watch Week is about how involvement with the program can boost people’s sense of safety in their homes and communities.
People can receive local crime information and prevention tips by subscribing to email updates on ewatch via ewatch.com.au.
