Does Kiama need Neighbourhood Watch?

A community meeting has been organised to discuss the benefits of forming a Neighbourhood Watch group to cover Kiama, Kiama Downs and Minnamurra. The idea was first mooted in the Kiama Community facebook group after a number of break-ins and other anti-social incidents were reported by members.

“We want to encourage as many people as possible to attend so we can talk with the police about how we can work together to create a safer community,” says organiser Anne Millard.

The long established Neighbourhood Watch Program involves community and police working together to:

  • establish a safer environment by reducing violence, crime and fear
  • build a safer community
  • develop community spirit
  • enhance communication between the community and police
  • prevent crime.

If you are interested in being part of the organisational committee, you will have an opportunity to nominate for the committee.

Those who are interested in being involved but can’t attend should contact Terry Beavan or Anne using the details below.
