OUR PURPOSEWithin the Ballarat community, to foster and enhance the partnership between police and the community and also to plan and implement activities to :
(a) minimise the incidence of preventable crime.
(b) improve the degree of personal and household security through education programs.
(c) expand our involvement in wider community safety and crime prevention initiatives
OUR CODE OF ETHICSMembers shall respect the diverse nature of NHW and its members and the right of each member to speak and represent different views.
In public, members shall speak well of each other and NHW and if representing NHW be punctual to functions and support NHW views and policies.
We are now organised into larger community groups which cover all of the residents of the City of Ballarat. Previously, we were organised into small local groups within defined boundaries, so if people didn't live in a specific NHW area they missed out on the programme. Now EVERYONE is able to take part in NHW And we are being proactive and taking the initiative on many issues affecting the safety and security of all residents in our community.
