Start A Patrol

Thank you for your interest in 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 think your community would benefit from the presence of a Community Patrol, please contact the CPNZ National Office at 04 817 0228 or using the contact form below.
