More sign up to Neigh­bour­hood Watch

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

MORE peo­ple are sign­ing up to Burswood Neigh­bour­hood Watch as the pro­gram gath­ers steam in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

A so­cial event was held at The Cir­cus on March 12, with about 150 peo­ple en­joy­ing a sausage siz­zle and hear­ing about how the pro­gram works.

“We had the Sid­ef­fect bus, the Vic­to­ria Park Lions cook­ing sausages and it was a good so­cial event,” com­mit­tee mem­ber Chris Quinn said

“We now have a di­rect mo­bile num­ber to the po­lice, which will mean we can get them out here quicker. About 60 peo­ple ex­pressed their in­ter­est in join­ing our What­sapp group, with about 30 peo­ple al­ready signed up and this will al­low peo­ple to know what’s hap­pen­ing.”

Mr Quinn said he hoped the pro­gram would help re­duce crime in the area.
