Last Updated: Wednesday, 18 June 2014 19:07
ACT Neighbourhood Watch (ACTNHW)is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October. An award is presented to the "ACTNHW Volunteer of the Year" at the AGM.
This is an award to a Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) member who volunteers for NHW activities over a period of time or who has made a significant contribution to NHW over the past year. There are undoubtedly volunteers who spend a fair bit of their time helping with NHW in various capacities and who have not been recognised for this work outside their local area. In some cases this could be helping to obtain funds for the Area, assisting with NHW stalls at fairs, fetes, festivals or for performing specific tasks or projects etc.

Suspicious fire investigation underway
Investigations are underway after ACT Policing attended a unit fire in Reid overnight.
ACT Fire and Rescue and police arrived at the Kogarah Lane unit around 9:30pm last night (Wednesday, 10 September) and found a large amount of smoke emanating from the unit.
Following an analysis of the scene once the fire had been extinguished, police and fire investigators believe the fire was deliberately lit and deemed it suspicious.
The circumstances surrounding the fire are being investigated by Criminal Investigations detectives.
Police ask that anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or who may have information about the fire, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.
Witnesses sought after woman struck by car in Monash
ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team (CIRT) is calling for witnesses to a collision in Monash on Friday afternoon (September 5) in which a 20-year-old woman was struck and critically injured by a vehicle on William Hudson Crescent.
Around 4.30pm on Friday, the victim had been returning to her vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, which was parked on the nature strip some metres from the roadway, and had opened her driver’s door to re-enter the car.
A white Chrysler 300C, driven by a 26-year-old Monash man, has collided with the driver’s side of the Corolla and also struck the woman, trapping her under her vehicle.
Acting Superintendent Traffic Operations Rod Anderson praised the quick-thinking actions by a Monash resident, who used a trolley jack to lift the damaged car, freed the woman and placed her in a recovery position before ACT Ambulance officers then came to her aid.
“By stepping in and assisting, there’s little doubt this man helped reduce the trauma on the woman,” Acting Superintendent Anderson said.
The woman, a US National visiting Australia, remains in a critical but stable condition in The Canberra Hospital.
Anyone who may have seen the collision and who has not yet provided a statement to police is urged to do so by contacting Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.
