A group of local neighbourhood watch groups held their first ‘Good Neighbour Security Expo’ at the community hall at Mount Gravatt Showgrounds today. Carindale Connect was very pleased to be a promotional partner of the event.
It was a great success and we hope they choose to run the event again. Neighbourhood Watch is going through a period of rejuvenation and events such as this make Neighbourhood Watch much more accessible, relevant and interesting.
The speakers were:
Chairperson: Jim Renshaw (Chair of Planning Committee & Area Coordinator Wishart NHW)
Official Opening by Jack Dempsey MP, QLD Minister for Police (introduced by Ian Walker MP)
Neighbourhood Watch QLD – Acting Senior Sergeant Rodney Bell, State Coordinator NHW QLD.
Older People Speak Out – Val French
Cyber-safety – Detective Sergeant Dave Dunn
Qld Homicide Victims Support Group – “One Punch Can Kill” campaign – Ross Thompson
