Good Afternoon All,

We had a good turn out to the public meeting at Evans Bay Intermediate School last Tuesday evening. We have about 35 people who have completed the initial expression of interest form to become part of a community patrol. I am in the process of sending out Police Security Check forms for these people this week.

Because of the interest in commencing a patrol in the Southern Suburbs (incl. Newtown, Mt Cook, Brooklyn, Mornington, Kingston, Vogeltown, Berhampore, Island Bay, Southgate, Owhiro Bay, and Houghton Bay) we will continue to seek expressions of interest over the next few weeks.

If you know anyone who is interested but couldn’t come to the meeting last week please ask them to make contact with me and I will inform them of the process from here.

We are looking for people to volunteer to be the eyes and ears for the community for 4 hours per month. Safety is paramount for patrols and engaging with offenders is left to Police. There are always two people working together when a patrol is working. The roster is determined by data gathered by Police about hot locations and times, in conjunction with the local knowledge of patrollers.

Community Patrols New Zealand is an independent organisation that works in partnership with Police to keep our communities safer. When these groups get up and running in your areas, they will select their own management committee who will determine the practicalities of how your patrol will operate. I will be the Police Liaison for both the Eastern and Southern Patrols.

Thank you for supporting this venture.

Newtown Community Constable
