- Redevelopment of the NHWQ website
- Completion of program renewal consultation with QPS personnel across the State

2. The 2013 NHWQ State Conference was held at Ipswich on Satuday 2 November 2013.
3. As a result of the $500 000 per year government funding to NHWQ, NHW street signs (large and small), householder kits and house plaques will now be provided free of charge. Previously these items were purchased by local groups except when supplied at the commencement of a new group.
A new NHW Resource Order Form has been uploaded and is available by using the Resources link.
Please use this form from now on and only order what is required for the present time. Do not stockpile items. Should you have any queries regarding the supply of NHW resources please contact your local police NHW coordinator.
4. NHWQ has taken the next step into the digital age with the launch of the myPolice NHWQ blog by Jack Dempsey, Minister for Police and Community Safety. Launched at Bundaberg on 13 December 2012, the NHWQ blog along with an updated NHWQ website will allow greater communication and information sharing between the Queensland Police Service and the NHW community.
