Neighbourhood Watch Queensland (NHWQ) provides a vital link between police and the community.
NHWQ Groups gives their members a direct point of contact with the police.
NHWQ enables the police to address community members’ concerns about local crime, reducing the fear of crime and improving community safety. At the same time, police rely heavily on NHWQ groups to give us information.
NHWQ = encouraging individuals, families, businesses and neighbourhoods to work together to strengthen and connect our communities for a safe and secure Queensland!!!

The Neighbourhood Watch Queensland (NHWQ) State Office is situated at the Crime Prevention Programs Unit (CPPU), Community Contact Command (CCC), Queensland Police Service (QPS).
The CPPU exists to support the QPS objectives to stop crime, make the community safer and build relationships across the community. The CPPU works with other CCC units to ensure effective community engagement and liaison as well as maintaining appropriate links to support services and community policing programs.
The CPPU deals with a number of state-wide crime prevention and community safety programs including NHWQ, Adopt-a-Cop, Adopt-a-School, Station Community Crime Reduction Officers (SCCROs), Volunteers in Policing (VIPs) and Lesbian/ Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Intersex (LGBTI).
The State Coordinator, NHWQ, manages the program on a state-wide level and reports to the Manager, Community Programs and Engagement, Policelink and Programs Group, CCC. Along with other members of the CPPU, the State Coordinator work closely with police officers and community members across Queensland to develop and implement strategies to improve participation in Neighbourhood Watch, its activities, events and initiatives.
