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.
