Neighbourhood Watch trailer aims to reinvigorate program
A PROMOTIONAL trailer aimed at "renewing and reinvigorating" Neighbourhood Watch across the Fraser Coast will make its first official appearance at the Fraser Coast Show.
The Neighbourhood Watch Crime Stoppers Crime Prevention Trailer had promotional material, banners and a barbecue, Senior Constable Melanie Ryan said on Tuesday.
"It's a result of generous donations from the Maryborough and Hervey Bay chambers, Zonta and a grant from the state Neighbourhood Watch Renewal Program," she said.
Snr Const Ryan said the trailer was ready to take "anywhere at anytime to any event" on the Fraser Coast.
There are 18 Neighbourhood Watch groups active in the area, with two established within the past year.
Snr Const Ryan said they wanted to establish more groups and promote Neighbourhood Watch across the Maryborough Police District.
