NW program is community driven and thrives on neighbours watching out for neighbours.
It is designed to help people:
- Reduce crime in their community
- Encourage neighbours to be alert to potential crime and take appropriate actions
- Combat crime before it starts by reducing the opportunities for crime to occur.
The generic handbook is meant to be an operating guide for use by people interested in the formation and operation of a Neighbourhood Watch, Community Volunteers and UCCM Police Officers responsible for the delivery of crime prevention programs. This handbook can be changed to suit the groups needs – it introduces and explains the general concepts and practices, required in the formation, management, coordination and preservation of NW.
A Neighbourhood Watch signifies a group of neighbours or community at large who have come together to reduce or prevent crime within a defined locale, for example, a neighbourhood.
