INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT BEING A COMMUNITY PATROLLER?
Upper Hutt Community Patrollers are volunteers giving their time and taking responsibility within our community to help the Police and the Community to make Upper Hutt and the Hutt Valley safer for everyone.
Anyone who wants to contribute to their community can apply, however there are strict membership criteria and police vetting is required - we're always on the lookout for good quality new recruits who want to make a difference in their communities. Membership involves continued training.
The patrol has links to the Upper Hutt City Council, other community organisations and the Police, all who share a similar interest in community safety.
