Western Bay of Plenty District Council supports the aim of Neighbourhood Support and its partner the New Zealand Police in making our homes, streets, neighbourhoods and communities safer and more caring places.
Neighbourhood Support works closely with police and many other organisations in our community to reduce crime, improve safety and prepare for possible emergencies and natural disasters.
The district's Neighbourhood Support Groups enable people to share information, ideas and insights. Your local Neighbourhood Support Group will:
Encourage neighbours to talk to each other
Share information that will help reduce the risk and fear of crime
Help foster a sense of community spirit where everyone is respected and valued
Educate and empower neighbours to take responsibility for their own safety
Identify the needs of neighbours and ways to assist each other
Identify the strengths and skills of neighbours to contribute to solving local problems
Minimise burglaries and car crime in the local area
Reduce graffiti, vandalism, violence and disorder
Support victims of crime
Enhance the safety features and appearance of the neighbourhood
Decide on ways to handle any civil emergencies that may occur
Know when and how to contact Police, other emergency services or support agencies
Liaise and co-operate with other community groups
The purpose of neighbourhood support is to prevent people becoming victims of criminal activity, particularly burglary.
