Sentinel Journal

Sentinel Journal

Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is a community based crime prevention program aimed at minimising the incidence of preventable crime, in particular, burglary and theft within a defined area. Through a willingness to work together, Police and the community can reduce crime in their area and improve the quality of life.

The NHW program encourages and teaches residents how to accurately take details and report any suspicious person and unusual or criminal activities in their area. This enables Police to provide a better service as well as provide a safer area for you.

The Sentinel Magazine is an important communication tool for NHW volunteers. It allows them to advertise local activities and communicate their successes. It provides practical crime prevention and community safety advice, and this information is disseminated through the broader community via local NHW area newsletters.
