The Malta Police Force has officially launched the Neighbourhood Watch Programme in Marsa.
‘The programme is coordinated by the Malta Police Marsa Community Policing Team in key streets and is planned to expand to other areas of Marsa. Neighbourhood Watch has already proven successful in other localities such as Mellieha, Wardija, Iklin, Madliena and Marsaxlokk.’
‘This initiative aims to foster a strong sense of community and cooperation between the residents and the police. We encourage the residents of these selected streets to actively participate and provide extra assistance to our officers as part of this project.’
‘Together, we can make a significant difference in ensuring the safety and security of our neighbourhood.
In order to streamline communication, the Neighbourhood Watch program assigns a dedicated coordinator to each area, ensuring smooth interaction among members through a dedicate WhatsApp chat and regular monthly meetings.’
‘These channels serve as effective platforms for the community to report any concerns or incidents, while also allowing the neighbourhood police officer to offer feedback and updates in response.’
