Main Objectives Of NWZ Scheme

  • Instil awareness if potential threats in the neighbourhood;
  • Promote the adoption of crime prevention measures by residents of public and private estates;
  • Foster a culture of good neighbourliness through mutual self-help in ensuring the safety and security of residents in our neighbourhoods;
  • Give residents a greater sense of security, participation and stake in the community; and
  • Develop networks of resident volunteers in each neighbourhood that are essential partners of the Police in our fight against crime and increasingly, terrorism.

 

Responsibilities

An NWZ Liaison Officer (LO) who is a RC, NC or RA member in the zone, and NWZ Assistant Liaison Officers (ALOs) who are representatives of residents located in a designated area within the zone are appointed within each NWZ.

The NWZ LO and ALOs will work closely with the Neighbourhood Police Centre (NPC) officers to coordinate and implement a wide range of community crime prevention activities and programmes to strengthen the community’s sense of security.
