Busy helping other communities

Our local CPNZ group has been working hard to set up a community patrol in Glen Eden, and we are very pleased to announce that they are now up and running and out on regular patrols.

Recently some of our team attended the Henderson Valley Community Day to raise awareness of our organisation and hopefully recruit some new patrollers! It is always such a great event and the team enjoyed rolling out some fun games for the kids, and chatting with the community. There are many ways you can help us to be the eyes and ears for the Police in our com-munity, not necessary as a volunteer although we are always on a lookout for more patrollers:

Stay safe, and look out for your neighbours.

Be aware of our volunteers and give us a wave when you see us out on patrol.

Tell others about us and the work we do.

Volunteer with us as a patroller (covering Waiatarua, Oratia, Henderson Valley and more).

A flexible commitment of around four hours per month. Full training and uniform supplied.

Police security clearance check and current drivers licence required. Volunteer with us in a support role.

It takes a team to keep our wheels on the road. Our biggest expense is petrol – donate directly to our fuel account at Oratia Mobil station on West Coast Road.

Donate to our Givealittle page – no amount is too small: Contact Sue Dell, Patrol Leader (, 021 681 207) for more information, or check out our Facebook page

Remember – please phone Police to report any incidents in our neighbourhood including witnessing bad driving. This enables Police to identify trends in the area and does get included in their planning activities:

111 – Emergency

105 – Non emergency (incident already happened and urgent assis-tance not required), or online

555 – From mobile phone only – urgent but not life-threatening driving incidents

0800 555 111 – Crimestoppers – to report anonymously, or online
