Community Patrols of New Zealand and New Zealand Police have an official partnership as governed by a signed Memorandum of Understanding. This partnership supports Patrols through the allocation of local Police Liaison Officers and an avenue for local intelligence which assists Patrols in their duties. CPNZ supports NZ Police through acting as a second set of ‘eyes or ears’ through observing and gathering intelligence.

Community Patrols of New Zealand and Neighbourhood Support New Zealand have been partners in building safer communities for many years. Many Patrols have local connections with Neighbourhood support groups as they assist each other in fundraising, looking at local initiatives and providing intelligence to one another.
As a Community Patrols volunteer you may be eligible for an incredible opportunity: a scholarship to attend Outward Bound in the beautiful Anakiwa. Outward Bound has partnered up with do-good organisations around the country so that volunteers can have the opportunity to attend the life-changing 21-day Classic course with support from Outward Bound’s generous donors.
