About EUNWA

The European Neighbourhood Watch Association (EUNWA) is a fully self-financed non-profit organisation under Austrian law, established in June 2014. EUNWA's purpose is to act as umbrella organization for neighbourhood watch associations and similar organizations in various European countries pursuing the prevention of crimes through cooperation among their members and with the police and other relevant local institutions and authorities.
We organize regular meetings of members; We collect information and disseminate electronic newsletters about crime prevention matters, developments, experiences, activities, new crimes and criminal methods; We collect information about neighbourhood watch and crime prevention activities of members, summarize such information in a "White Book" and disseminate it among members and to national and international organizations and authorities, updating it regularly; We exchange information about "best practices" of crime prevention; We facilitate members' learning from each other by sharing know-how, operational tools and methods, and experiences, thus improving their own crime prevention efforts; We extend our membership to as many European and other countries and organizations as possible; We assist, within the limits of our financial and organizational possibilities, with the formation and organization of other potential member organizations; We establish and maintain relations with relevant national and international organizations, scientific institutions, the business community and the public; We communicate with national and international media promoting EUNWA's and our members' purposes.
