The Neighbourhood Watch is a committee of local residents in the community who are committed to ensuring that the community remains a safe and secure place to live. The committee meets to discuss the community safety and security and examines the recent events that have been reported. Close ties are kept with the local police and city officials to exchange information and ideas in the interest of public safety.
Like most organisations, additional help is always needed. If you feel you can give some of your time to the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, then please contact the Secretary (see above).
