On 6 October 2014, the City of Belmont launched its third Community Watch patrol vehicle. The community stated in the recent 2014 Community Perception Survey that they wanted to see more security patrols and the City has listened. The addition of an extra security vehicle will assist the City in maintaining a high standard of community safety through the Community Watch Patrols.
The City of Belmont Community Watch patrols are a 24 hour security patrol service. There are currently two Community Watch vehicles and both vehicles are equipped with CCTV for evidence gathering purposes.
The Community Watch officers respond to calls from City of Belmont residents and businesses to assist them with security concerns and issues in their community. The City works closely with WA Police to target areas of concern. Community Watch patrols identify areas of concern to provide a presence in a location to deter criminal or anti social activity.
