Taupo Community PatrolWelcome to Taupo Community Patrol website

The role of the Taupo Community Patrol is to assist the Police and we do this by:

  • Patrolling residential, business & industrial areas
  • Acting as eyes and ears for the Police
  • Undertaking surveillance, observation and other tasks as requested by the Police
  • Taking notes, recording and gathering information
  • Assisting, when asked, at accident scenes
  • Watching out for stolen cars
  • Reporting signs of suspicious activity
  • Providing personnel to operate CCTV cameras and report activities to the Police.

Community Patrols are made up of ordinary people who want to give something back to their community. If you would like to join the Taupo Community Patrol or to find out further information, please telephone Sylvia Churchman on 378 2853 or Jan Hamilton on 378 0729.
