Volunteer Community Patrollers

Tawa Community Patrol

Volunteer Role


We are currently recruiting for more volunteer community patrollers (night patrollers in particular).

Community Patrollers act as the eyes and ears of the New Zealand Police - observing and reporting when something isn't right or looks suspicious. We have a close working relationship with the awesome community policing team at Kapiti-Mana Police (Wellington District Police). We also work with partner agencies such as Tawa Volunteer Fire Brigade and Wellington City Council in the likes of civil defense emergencies.

If you:

  • Live in the Tawa area

  • Are at least 18 years of age

  • Can patrol at least two x 3 hour shifts per month

  • Can attend bi-monthly training meetings throughout the year

  • Are computer & smartphone literate

  • Can pass a Police vetting check

Full training is provided - you will be buddied up with an experienced patroller to teach you everything you need to know, and patrollers always patrol in pairs using our distinctively marked patrol car.

If you'd like to know more, simply complete the form at the link below to register your interest and one of our recruitment coordinators will be in touch to discuss further.
