RESIDENTS received advice on making neighbourhoods safer and joining Neighbourhood Watch at last month’s Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association meeting.
Neighbourhood Watch state co-ordinator Jenny O’Brien spoke about ways people could get involved in community safety.
Her advice included getting to know all neighbours, exchanging contact details, marking valuable property with driver’s licence numbers and signing up for eWatch newsletters.
She handed out brochures, magnets, bin stickers, UV pens, reporting pads and home security checklists.
She also encouraged people to report anything suspicious they see to Crime Stoppers, and to note down details of unusual people or vehicles in case it could help police investigations later.
Community groups or individuals can apply for grants of up to $500 to run neighbourhood events. Visit www.nhw.wa.gov.au for details.
