Daniel Andrews failed to renew this funding and the CEO resigned, leaving the organisation with limited resources to run and co-ordinate programs and community safety initiatives.
"Unlike Daniel Andrews the Liberal Nationals Coalition understands the important role that Neighbourhood Watch in the City of Greater Dandenong can play in responding to crime and issues of community safety.
“Despite experiencing a crime tsunami, with many in the City of Greater Dandenong living in fear, Daniel Andrews cut funding to the respected and proven Neighbourhood Watch program in Greater Dandenong.
“An elected Liberal Nationals Coalition will partner with Neighbourhood Watch and provide $2million over four years to fund locally based crime prevention initiatives and central head office co-ordination.
“Neighbourhood Watch and its hardworking volunteers have served the City of Greater Dandenong for decades and deserve our support."
