Help watch out for crime
CHARLEVILLE community leaders are starting up Neighbourhood Watch again.
Deputy mayor Annie Liston has teamed up with police to begin the process of getting the community organised in the fight against crime.
Neighbourhood Watches vow to report any suspicious activity within the community to the police or crime stoppers.
Cr Liston said the objective was “to promote a healthy and safe environment” within the Charleville community.
“We’ve been talking about it for a while but we’d really started kicking it along last week,” Cr Liston said.
Sergeant Andrew Irvine said that Neighbourhood Watch would be about creating awareness of crime preventing.
“It’s a partnership between the police and the community,” he said.
The first meeting of the new Neighbourhood Watch is set for today at 3pm at the Healthy Ageing Centre.
