THE Village Neighbourhood Watch programme is clearly gaining momentum as villages across the Brunei-Muara District began reactivating their membership into the programme as a means to battle crime.
From December 5 to 7, as many as 20 members of the Village Neighbourhood Watch were re-activated by the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) during the launch of the Muara Beach Festival.
During the festival, the members worked alongside the police in conducting patrols of the area, allowing them exposure on how to handle security matters and maintain peace.
Other Village Neighbourhood Watch programmes under the jurisdiction of the Muara Police Station will also be activated in the near future.
On December 6, a total of 12 Limau Manis Police Station personnel conducted patrols with the village heads of Kg Masin, Kg Limau Manis and eight members of the neighbourhood watch programme.
Patrols were carried out along Jalan Sangai-Sangai areas and the farms around Kg Masin. Additionally, Limau Manis Police Station personnel patrolled the areas of Wasan Paddy Farm with the village head of Kg Wasan Village.
