CHANGES TO THE NHW APPLICATION SYSTEM
Volunteering with the Neighbourhood Watch program has changed and now has two tiers of participation.
You may now become a NHW Supporter by assisting with the local newsletter delivery process. Alternatively you may fully participate with NHW by becoming a member of the Police Volunteers Program.
Either level of participation requires you to submit the appropriate application.
NHW SUPPORTER: A NHW Supporter is restricted to assisting with the newsletter delivery process and is required to complete the NHW Supporter Form. The single page form still requires the applicant to supply proof of identification to a Police Officer who must witness and sign the form. A photograph of the applicant is not required. Submitted forms are processed, and you will be advised of acceptance by way of a letter containing confirmation and participant information.
A PDF version of the form is available for download below.
POLICE VOLUNTEER NHW: To participate in all NHW activities you are required to submit an application to the Police Volunteers Program (PVP). Full participation includes, but is not limited to, being on a committee, crime prevention activities such as involvement at displays or plate safe days, participating at events i.e. a barbecue or traffic marshalling at the Australia Day Parade.
Contact your local Crime Prevention Section for further information on joining the PVP or clarification on becoming a NHW Supporter.
The use of the original NHW Volunteer application has ceased and therefore will no longer be processed.
