A TOTAL of 38 participants completed the Neighbourhood Watch course session 1/2019 and received certificates during a closing ceremony at the Tutong Community Hall recently.
The two-day course was attended by members of the public and private sector who are registered members of the Neighbourhood Watch programme under the Tutong District.
Commanding Officer of Tutong Police District Superintendent Haji Mohamad Khairul Amilin bin Haji Idris, the guest of honour, presented the certificates to the participants.
Officers and personnel from the Public Relations Unit of the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) as the Secretariat of the Neighbourhood Watch programme were also present.
During the course, participants attended talks and briefings by officers from departments under the RBPF.
The course was held to increase the participants’ knowledge, understanding and experience on preparation and implementation of tasks as members of the Neighbourhood Watch programme, in addition to crime prevention action and security steps that needed to be carried out.
The course was hoped to benefit the participants in becoming the catalysts in achieving the Neighbourhood Watch programme’s aspirations to assist in preventing and combatting criminal activities in the country.
