Tips

One of the priorities of Neighbourhood Watch Ku-ring-gai & Hornsby is to help educate residents, businesses and visitors in the area about Crime Prevention.

There’s tons of useful crime prevention advice on the internet. The best comes from the NSW Police and we’ll point you to their website every time.

Neighbourhood Watch Ku-ring-gai & Hornsby have created their our own materials to fill a gap in the information easily available to residents. These materials can be downloaded as pdfs, then saved to your computer for later printing.
