About Neighbourhood Watch Australasia

Neighbourhood Watch Australasia is the representative organisation that leads, facilitates and supports the Neighbourhood Watch (Australia) and Neighbourhood Support (New Zealand) goal of creating safer, connected and inclusive communities. We do this by formulating strategies and policies that encourage community participation in building safe and confident communities to reduce the fear of crime and increase feelings of safety in the community.

  • Strengthening our resilience against crime
  • Working together with Police and the community
  • Feeling safer in our homes and within our local communities
  • Making our communities better places to live
