Neighbourhood Watch Greater Dandenong
Neighbourhood Watch in Victoria was started when it was realised that the Police alone could not control the rising crime rate, in particular burglary and related thefts. The support of the public was sought to help reduce crimes such as burglary and theft which resulted in a pilot area opened in 1983 in Kananook, a suburb of Frankston.
The program has been so successful in preventing crime that there are now Neighbourhood Watch groups servicing both city and rural locations in more than 80 per cent of the Local Government Areas. There are a now hundreds of thousands of people connecting to Neighbourhood Watch Facebook Pages and Groups across the state.
Neighbourhood Watch has undergone many changes and our area is no exception, in 2010 NHW committees did align to cover the same boundaries as Local Government Areas (LGA) and Police Service Areas (PSA) and as such Southern Metro Division 3 has three new committees covering areas, Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia.
To be a vibrant, inclusive and effective organisation that improves the safety and security of community life across Victoria. We do this by supporting our members and partners in promoting crime prevention, resilient communities and social inclusion
