Auckland Central Community Patrol

About Us

The Auckland Central Community Patrol is a dedicated group of individuals committed to fostering a safer and more secure environment for everyone in our vibrant city. Our volunteers are the extra eyes and ears for the New Zealand Police, actively patrolling the streets, and contributing to the overall well-being of the community.


What We Do

The Auckland Central Community Patrol actively contributes to the safety initiatives in Auckland’s city centre. Covering wide and diverse areas such as Britomart, Viaduct/Waterfront, Wynyard Quarter, Karangahape Road, Queen Street, Federal and Elliot St, Fort St area, High St district, Parnell, Freemans Bay and Ponsonby Rd, our dedicated volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring a safer and vibrant environment. Engaging in high-visibility partnership days, coordinating with key stakeholders, and actively participating in ongoing safety initiatives, the patrol focuses on proactive patrolling, addressing anti-social behavior, and maintaining a visible presence. With operational hubs strategically located in Queen’s Wharf, High Street, and Queen Street, the patrol not only prioritises safety but also actively engages with the community to create a secure and connected city centre.

High-Visibility Partnership Days

The Auckland Central Community Patrol takes a lead role in the ‘Together for Tāmaki Makaurau’ collaborative initiative, partnering with Auckland Council, NZ Police, government agencies, Heart of the City, Karangahape Business Association and social support services to enhance safety from Karangahape Road to the waterfront. Prioritizing safety in diverse areas is a top concern for Auckland Council and Mayor Wayne Brown, emphasizing the need for a secure environment for residents, businesses, and visitors.

As a proactive measure, the patrol actively participates in weekly high-visibility partnership days, held leading up to Christmas, where they collaborate with Auckland Council CityWatch, Compliance teams, Police, and Māori Wardens. These initiatives, addressing anti-social behavior, set conduct expectations, and contribute to a safer city centre.

These partnership days signify a reinforced collaboration, extending beyond the festive season into the new year. The Auckland Central Community Patrol plays a vital role in this ongoing effort, ensuring a proactive and visible presence in specified areas, actively contributing to a secure and vibrant city centre.
