Roma Neighbourhood Watch needs more members
ROMA Police Senior Constable Rochelle Gillett has always wanted to start a neighbourhood watch group - now that dream is a reality.
Roma Neighbourhood Watch held its second meeting on Tuesday night at the Community Café.
Neighbourhood Watch is a community-based crime prevention program which aims to reduce crime and build a safe, secure and more confident community.
Snr Cstble Gillett said the NHW assisted in educating the community how to improve their personal and household security and to improve the relationship between local police and the community.
"To make it a real success, we need the community to be involved to get it running," she said.
Maranoa Locksmiths owner Darren Thrupp believed the program would help reduce crime.
The next meeting will be held on January 19 at 5.15pm at the Community Café. Like Roma Neighbourhood Watch on Facebook.
