Newport Watch History
Newport Watch has recently been changed as a watch-and-report to Police in the usual legal manner.
- Newport Watch was the state’s longest-running Neighbourhood Watch program and was the reason for the formation of the NWPOA.
- 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.
Zones and Zone Captains no longer are defined. Please report any crime activities directly to Police.
