  • The Newport Waterways area continues to enjoy a very low crime rate due to the vigilance of members.
  • Members are informed on how to improve personal safety as well as household and boat security.
  • Neighbours look out for each other, reporting suspicious activity in real time via our closed Facebook group.
  • Newport Watch stickers identify member properties as a further deterrent.

History of Newport Watch

Newport Watch was established and sponsored by the NWPOA Incorporated to prioritise security throughout the estate.

Newport Watch was a community watch program for the area, which had been divided into zones.
