In cooperation with the Community Policing of the Police Station Aradippou, the program “Neighbourhood Watch” has been operating since 2012.
The first meeting called to inform all Aradippou residents was called on the 9th May 2012 under the auspices of the former Minister of Justice and Public Order, Mr. Loukas Louka.
The strategy of the program is prevention of crime. The citizens involved, watch out for and inform police of any unusual/suspicious/criminal activities which occur in their area, and inform police or the neighbourhood policeman/policewoman.
There are periodic additional meetings for the training of the Watchers - Coordinators of the program. Results from the start of the program have shown a 30% drop in crime.
The approved Neighbourhood Watchers – coordinators in our municipality has reached 2000.
