Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) people want to help their community. In 2024, all our members and friends are asked to at least DOT for their neighbourhood. If we all D O T we become a mass of fixers! Each month we suggest things to make your neighbourhood a nicer place. Tell us about your D O T to email@example.com and be in the running for a great prize!
THE EASIEST D O T OF ALL
Download the Snap, Send, Solve app and solve all those annoying issues in your area that, they should fix! It takes you just five minutes to report the issue, then tell us when it is resolved by an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is an example of what you can report:
Exhibit A – hole in the footpath.
Could cause a trip or fall.
Exhibit B – no hole in the footpath:
Snap, Send Solve – hole fixed – so easy!!
With the support of Knight Frank, Tasmania Police and an increasing list of participating businesses, NHW will continue to host Cuppa with a Cop (CWAC) events across the state in 2024. See the updated Calendar of Events in each Bulletin to find out when the next CWAC is happening near you.
All members are encouraged to attend the Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) Annual General Meeting (AGM) in 2024 which includes our Awards and Prize Giving ceremonies for volunteers and competition winners. A great morning tea is included!
Please note that the AGM is at 10am on Saturday, 19 October 24, in the Auditorium of the Country Club, Launceston. This is a revised date to that which appears in our 2024 Calendar.
If you missed the 2023 Awards & Prizegiving ceremony you can view the photo gallery from the event in Launceston and a follow up presentation at the ABC in Hobart.
Our MOU with Tasmania Police was re-signed on 29 November 23 by Commissioner Donna Adams. This document reaffirms NHW as a partner of Tasmania Police and authorises our access to official crime reports and prevention information to share with our communities. Having accurate data improves our ability to secure and protect our properties against crime.
In November 23 Tasmania Police launched an online survey to learn the policing issues that matter most to the Tasmanian community. NHW was asked to encourage people across the state to complete the survey. When the results are received, they will be shared with you.
However, in the interim we can take pride in the compliments received from Commissioner Adams who said, Your role in sharing the survey and promotional materials has been an invaluable part of this success and no doubt provided a boost in participation numbers.
