Great neighbours make great neighbourhoods!

Some examples of the work that the Neighbourhood Watch volunteers do in the community are:

  • Bring people together and help develop community spirit
  • Report and encouraging others to report suspicious incidents to the Police
  • Distribute Neighbourhood Watch resources in their local areas
  • Promote crime prevention initiatives
  • Attend Neighbourhood Watch meetings where information is shared with the local Police
  • Increase communication and knowledge amongst neighbours
  • Provide a visible sign that residents care about their community

In November 2017, the Shire was the first local government authority to be presented with the inaugural Neighbourhood Watch Gold Award for Participation by a Local Government Authority.   The award recognised the Shire’s positive contribution in supporting the program’s objectives in creating a safe place and preventing crime in the community. 

Friendly Neighbourhoods Grants

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is supporting our community to get to know their neighbours and connect with their local neighbourhood.

The Friendly Neighbourhoods Grant is for individuals and local community groups to apply for financial assistance towards the costs associated with hosting an event or activity, that will foster these neighbourhood connections.
