Neighbourhood Watch

Last week the City of Gosnells recognised 30 years of service by the Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch (GDNHW).

From its beginning in 1988, the GDNHW has provided information about safety and security to community members at local events, through ‘Hot Spot’ doorknocks and at their resource centre. They also provide bike identification engraving, the Street Meet and Greet program and vehicle number plate anti-theft screw installation events. 

“The City is proud to have worked in partnership with the GDNHW since its inception, and we look forward to continuing this relationship in the years to come,” Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said.

“By providing community members with information and resources, and promoting their community safety message, the GDNHW helps to reduce the fear of crime, encourage more connected communities and makes our community a more inclusive place to live.

“It’s a huge benefit to our community and so I’d like to thank the present and past members of the GDNHW for their time, effort, enthusiasm and hard work over the past 30 years.
