Our 40th Birthday

Celebrating 40 years of Neighbourhood Watch in Victoria.

We turned 40 and had a party to celebrate! On 15 June 2023 more than 100 past and present Neighbourhood Watch volunteers, supporters, partners, staff, Board Members and Victoria Police gathered at the RACV City Club to celebrate 40 years of Neighbourhood Watch in Victoria. It was on that date in 1983 that the very first official Neighbourhood Watch meeting was held in Kananook, near Frankston. Thanks to our major partner RACV for hosting our celebrations.
