The Tawa Community Patrol was established in 2008 and acts as the 'eyes and ears' of the New Zealand Police. Our aim is to provide a highly visible presence to prevent and report crime and promote safer communities. We have grown to 45 volunteer members who are all locals of diverse backgrounds, ages and skills.
We operate both daytime and night patrols - currently providing the community with over 1000 patrol hours each year. Our uniformed patrollers use our marked vehicle to patrol, or maintain a visible presence on foot, interacting with the public during weekdays and on Friday and Saturday evenings. Our patrol volunteers also patrol during and after natural disasters and wild weather events as required. Our patrol territory includes Tawa, Linden, Grenada North, and Kenepuru areas.
The Patrol maintains strong working partnerships with the Kapiti-Mana Police District, Wellington City Council, Tawa Community Board, and the local community and is affiliated to our national organisation - Community Patrols of New Zealand (CPNZ).
Join our team of volunteers if you want to make a real difference in Tawa.
