Wellington South Community Patrol is based in Newtown and relies on motivated volunteers to help keep the suburbs safe. After receiving safety training from the NZ Police, we patrol our patch – acting as eyes and ears for the Police. We have recently purchased our own vehicle which is painted to be highly visible. Two patrollers are the minimum for any patrol, and we are in regular phone and radio contact. We normally patrol once a month, for up to four hours. Residents, motorists and the business community have strongly supported this initiative, which has recorded dozens of instances of helping people who may be at risk and calming potentially troublesome situations with our mere presence, or the ability to call on higher help. If you want to help keep your suburb safe – from Mt Cook and Brooklyn south through Newtown, Kingston and Berhampore to Island Bay and Owhiro Bay, come for a trial ride. You may just find it as satisfying as we do.
