Who We Are

Community Patrols of New Zealand (CPNZ) is a national organisation that was formed in 2002. It supports over 5,000 volunteers in over 170 affiliated Community Patrols throughout New Zealand.

Community Patrols are organised and operated by their local communities and raise their annual operating expenses through local grants, sponsorships and donations.

Community Patrollers are volunteers working closely with Police as extra “eyes and ears” through intelligence and observation to assist Police and other agencies to build safer communities.

Community Patrols are independent from the Police but receive regular Police guidance, training and tasking.
