Get Involved

If you want to join a Neighbourhood Watch group why not start by going along to your nearest group’s next meeting?  You can get in contact with the Area Coordinator, or just turn up.

Neighbourhood Watch meetings are public and everyone is welcome.  Attending a meeting is a great way to meet your local members and find out what Neighbourhood Watch is all about.

Find your nearest group and:

  • find out the date and time of their next meeting
  • get the name and contact details of the local Area Coordinator.

Joining a group

Whether you're looking to volunteer regularly, or get involved just once a year, Neighbourhood Watch SA and SAPOL have plenty of opportunities for you to help build a safer South Australia.

Delivering newsletters

By becoming a Neighbourhood Watch supporter you’ll be able to help educate and inform your local community about local crime issues and how to avoid becoming a victim of crime by delivering Neighbourhood Watch newsletters to local homes.
