Start A Patrol

Thank you for your interest in considering starting a Community Patrol with CPNZ.

CPNZ is dedicated to helping build safer communities in partnership with NZ Police and others. Our vision is a New Zealand where everyone feels safe. We achieve this vision through the active presence of trained Patrollers, patrolling in their community to prevent crime and reduce harm in partnerships with others.

Under the guidance of the CPNZ Trust Board, Patrols service the individual needs of their local community, patrolling high crime areas, and providing assistance at accidents and crime scenes.

If you feel that your local community would benefit from having a Community Patrol, please download the below Start-Up Booklet to discover what your first steps can be.
