The AshfieldCAN is always looking for ways to improve the sense of community in our suburb.

At last night’s meeting we met a couple of the members of our local community policing team. Senior Sergeant Ian North and Sergeant Dave Snowball who encouraged us to use ewatch. This is an electronic ‘neighbourhood watch’ system.

ewatch is an email based system that keeps you connected to your local police and council so that you can help be proactive in making your community safer. Join ewatch to receive regular email updates on local crime trends and statistics, safety initiatives, emerging issues and community building events.
