 What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is a not-for–profit community-based organisation where volunteers come together to support Victoria Police to make their local communities safer by promoting crime prevention initiatives and closer community ties.

NHW groups have a variety of ways they can raise the required level of funds, including donations,advertising and fundraising events such as sausage sizzles. Much of our work involves encouraging, advising and awareness of crime prevention.

What Would I do if I Joined NHW?

There are roles for you in NHW that can cater for your individual skills, energy, interests and availability.

Some of the things you could do include:

  • Directly supporting the Police in reducing crime.
  • Delivering newsletters to houses or businesses.
  • By helping at community events and distributing brochures to the public on home security and crime prevention in your neighbourhood.

Editing a newsletter or managing the social media page. 



The following describes the manner in which applications for membership of NHW Victoria are to be handled:

There are two classes of members:

  • Accredited Members
  • Community Members

It is important for the reputation of NHW and its programs that Accredited members complete a National Police Check (NPC) for the role they are to perform within the organisation.


Come down to meet us and we can answer most of your questions. The group meets on the last Thursday of each month at LB Davern Reserve, Dry Creek Cres., Wandong (excl. June & Dec.).
