Today the North Buderim Neighbourhood Watch group was awarded the 2016 Buderim Community Safety Award. This award acknowledges the positive contributions to community safety and crime prevention, the NHW group has had in the Buderim area. This active NHW area has introduced the 50 in my street program to reduce speeding motorists throughout their community, holds regular meetings with their community to keep them informed of crime trends, still produces a newsletter that goes to every household and recentty held a one way screw community event where one way screws were fitted to over 70 cars in the area. Through a grant from NHW Queensland this group also designed a keyring that could record your licence number so if lost and handed into police the keys could be returned to the owner. Acting Inspector Gavin Marsh thanked the community group for working in partnership with the police.
“Community safety is everyone’s responsibility but some of our community organisations go that “extra mile, this is an opportunity to recognise these valued members of our community ”
The North Buderim Neighbourhood Watch group also has a strong partnership with local police especially their Police Liaison Officer, Senior Constable Jermey Spencer who was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the NHW group.
Congratulations to Buderim Safe for organising the award and well done to the North Buderim Neighbourhood Watch for keeping their community safe.
