IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The April NHW meeting scheduled for Monday 6 April has been cancelled due to the current coronavirus club Closures. Similarly, we have also decided not to proceed with the delivery of the newsletters since people are being asked to stay at home.

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday 6th April at 10.00am at the Solander Lakes Bowls Club. Please come along and get to know your neighbourhood.
Banksia Beach Neighbourhood Watch have supplied the PHRCA with 50km speed zone stickers, These are to be placed on your general garbage bin, on the side which faces the on coming traffic. If you live along Marina Blvd and would like to display one of these stickers on your bin, please contact the PHRCA by using the contact page on this website and we will deliver to you.
We also have a small number of “Neighbourhood Watch Queensland” letterbox plaques if anyone is interested, just let us know via the contact page.
What is Neighbourhood Watch
NHW helps bring local communities and police together to address local issues and help create community solutions, by getting involved in the week’s events and activities, you can and help make your NHW work for you. The Queensland Police has supported NHW since its introduction in 1984 as a community based program designed to reduce localised crime and the fear of crime. The program has a range of additional benefits to police when run effectively in local communities, participation in NHW helps people feel more connected within their community, and helps people improve their personal safety and home security. Importantly for police, when NHW is running effectively in a local community, we’re more likely to receive reports of criminal or suspicious activity and the quality of the information we receive improves. Neighbourhood Watch Week is designed to boost NHW membership and encourage positive engagement between police and community. Community members interested in joining NHW should be directed to the NHWA website, www. nhwa.com.au.
