Neighbourhood Watch Queensland (NHWQ) Community Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting held on the 27 May 2017.
This year, the Park Regis Hotel, Brisbane play host to the annual face to face meeting of the CAC members. CAC consists of District Coordinators representing NHW members within each of the 15 Police districts. The committee act as an advisory body to the Queensland Police Service and aim to provide a community perspective to the management and direction of the program on issues relating to the strategic direction, promotion and participation of community members in the program. The district representatives put forward ideas and concerns raised by individual watches in their districts, as well as sharing their NHW success stories and plans for the future.
The program commenced in 1988 and this year marks the celebration of 29 years, the program has advanced a great deal in that time with discussion focused on social media policy and guidelines applying to all social media platforms such as the blog and Facebook. The NHWQ State Conference being held on the 7th October 2017, at the Beenleigh Event Centre was also discussed, with excellent suggestions for the agenda and key note speakers.
The meeting was a productive and successful day, many thanks to all the members’ contributions.
