Too much violence


Why & When Why & When

Why and when was Neighbourhood Watch created?

Neighbourhood Watch in Namibia was started when it was realised that the Police alone could not control the rising crime rate, in particular burglary and related thefts. The support of the public was sought to help reduce crimes such as burglary and theft.

The program has been so successful in preventing crime, Neighbourhood Watch areas servicing both city and rural locations.
