In Ninove there are already 15 Neighborhood Information Networks (BINs). The city is calling on you to join the BIN network in your area.
A Neighborhood Information Network (BIN) is a partnership between residents and the local police within a certain neighborhood (neighbourhood, hamlet, sub-municipality, etc.). The initiative to set up a BIN comes from the local residents. If the police receives a report that could concern a BIN, they send a message to the members of the network.
Today there are BINs in Appelterre-Eichem, Aspelare, Denderwindeke, Meerbeke, Neigem, Ninove, Okegem, Pollare and Outer. If you would like to join a BIN in your area, please contact the coordinator or send an email to the mayor’s office. The coordinators can be found at www.ninove.be/bin. Once you have submitted your application, the police will check your details and you will be included in the network.
If you want to set up a BIN if there isn’t one in the area yet, you can contact the mayor’s office.
Mayor Tania De Jonge: “I am extremely proud of this security project, it is a very nice citizens’ initiative. With the exception of a few areas, we have now been able to develop a very nice and extensive network. The BINs are not only an information network in support of the police, they also raise awareness about various security themes. I am therefore very grateful to my cabinet employee, our police and our BIN coordinators for joining this project. We hope to be able to convince a number of initiators to set up a BIN.”
