NSW Neighbourhood Watch groups are remaining confident on their future following a meeting with NSW Police officials and government bodies on Tuesday.
Bill Hackney, president of the recently formed statewide Neighbourhood Watch, called the meeting a success, hoping to receive funding for their public liability insurance which has lead to their current suspension.
"We have a really good relationship between the ministers office, NSW Police and ourselves," he said.
"The office is looking into whether or not they can assist with the insurance costs, and moving forward, all parties look forward to working together as a great partnership."
Mr Hackney said he was "reasonably optimistic" about not having to scrape together funds from each Neighbourhood Watch group across the state in order to fund their own umbrella insurance.
"We'll be giving it to the end of the week to see what the officials say before going ahead with taking out a policy ourselves," he said.
The group will also be putting forward a proposal for a package of assistance for the new state body, covering admin and set-up costs, as well as organising getting databases up to date.
