Massive budget cuts severely deplete Toowoomba's Neighbourhood Watch.

Toowoomba's Neighbourhood Watch volunteers are disappointed, after the State Government cut their funding by 85%. 
Speaking with The Chronicle...the Member for Toowoomba South, David Janetzki said many Neighbourhood Watch groups were unaware the government had slashed funding for the state's 400 groups from $500,000 to $75,000. 
As a result, the Neighbourhood Watch Queensland's annual conference, awards and various local community engagement events will be scrapped...due to the budget cuts.
