Neighbourhood Watch has a strong presence in the Ku-ring-gai Council and Hornsby Shire Council areas
Author: Neighbourhood Watch Ku-ring-gai & Hornsby
Neighbourhood Watch Ku-ring-gai & Hornsby covers all the NHW groups in these council areas that fall into the Ku-ring-gai Police Area Command, whether face-to-face in the community or online, eg on Facebook. We are run by volunteers and our aim is to educate residents in crime prevention for all types of crime - from homes to identity theft, cars to cyber-bullying, you name it, who or what! Please contact us if you need help. We welcome new volunteers!
Our ‘Links’ page has been updated to include all those for Neighbourhood Watch New South Wales Inc, which includes Facebook page, Facebook group, Twitter, YouTube Channel (we’re jealous!) and Instagram.
Neighbourhood Watch NSW is inviting sponsors, from ‘Community Partner’ level up to the ultimate ‘Diamond Package’. Please ask for the details via their email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0401 384 003 and show your support.
All the local registered NHW groups rely on NHW NSW for insurance cover, in order to continue their day-to-day activities, such as holding a crime prevention stall in a shopping centre. This was previously the responsibility of the NSWPF until a re-reading of the fine print in April 2019 abruptly left groups with no coverage.

Covid has made Neighbourhood Watch have a stronger online presence in the community.
How has the Covid pandemic affected you?
Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) has been prevented from holding the face-to-face meetings with the community, with limited delivery of printed newsletters.
However, NHW in Ku-ring-gai & Hornsby has been growing into the online space. Already represented on Facebook, new groups have formed via Facebook pages for NHW Brooklyn and NHW Mt Kuring-gai. Our weekly eNewsletter has been a vital link for many, keeping the community updated with information and warnings about crime in the area, as well as sharing the Facebook posts from our local police at Hornsby police station. The next step is to hold a Microsoft Teams online meeting, enabling residents to join in from the comfort of their safe, warm homes.
