Residents urged to stay safe

You, your neighbours, your community and the police together can help to prevent and reduce crime by registering with Neighbourhood Watch in your area.

NHW has programs aimed at making individuals aware of crime prevention initiatives in and around homes, rural communities and in schools. To register as a participant visit www.nhw.wa.gov.au.

WA Police encourage residents to participate by signing up to the WA Police Facebook page, Twitter or the new ewatch program.

The latter is an email-based system that connects residents to their local police and their councils.

Residents who join ewatch receive regular email updates on crime trends and statistics, safety initiatives, emerging issues and event that are specific to the area. For information and to join, visit www.ewatch.com.au.

Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility so report any suspicious activity to police on 131 444.
