About Us

At the heart of Tawa, New Zealand, stands the Tawa Community Patrol — a dedicated group established in 2008, acting as the 'eyes and ears' of the New Zealand Police. Our paramount objective is to foster safer communities by providing a highly visible presence, deterring and reporting crime. Our remarkable growth now boasts 45 volunteers, all local residents from diverse backgrounds, ages, and skill sets.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we proudly operate under the name Tawa Community Patrol Charitable Trust (New Zealand Charities Services Registration Number CC29931).

Our commitment knows no bounds, as we conduct both day and night patrols, contributing over 1,300 volunteer patrol hours annually. Our uniformed patrollers employ our distinctive marked vehicle or maintain a conspicuous presence on foot, engaging with the public on weekdays and various evenings. Additionally, we extend our services to include patrols during and after natural disasters and wild weather events as needed.

Our patrol territory encompasses the areas of Tawa, Linden, Grenada North, and Kenepuru.

The Tawa Community Patrol nurtures robust partnerships with the Kapiti-Mana Police District, Wellington City Council, Tawa Community Board, and the local community. We proudly stand affiliated with our national organisation, Community Patrols of New Zealand (CPNZ).

With an unwavering commitment to safeguarding our community, the Tawa Community Patrol stands steadfast, ensuring a secure and harmonious environment for all.
