Bruce Hatrick from Bethlehem Community Patrol

The Bethlehem Community Patrol is affiliated with the national body, CPNZ (Community Patrols New Zealand). CPNZ was first formed in 2001 and today it supports over 5000 member volunteers spread over 130 community patrols across New Zealand.

Our patrol car is based at the Tauranga Police Station.

Currently we have around 22 active members. We are now looking for more people to join us so if you have a genuine desire to make a difference in the community please contact us.

Our members are all dedicated volunteers who come from all kinds of working backgrounds - from a host of retired and working people from different trades and industries. One characteristic we all have in common though, is our desire to be of a service to the local community, with particular focus on working with Police in the prevention of crime.

We patrols the areas of Sulphur Point, Matua, Bellevue, Brookfield, Judea, Otumoetai, Pillans Point, Bethlehem, and Te Puna. We presently put out a two person patrol in our patrol vehicle on Friday and Saturday nights and also one day patrol a week. We aim to expand this with more patrols as we grow our volunteer base.

We are seeking mature persons of excellent character with a sound and common sense approach and who have a desire to keep our local communities safer, by being extra ‘eyes and ears’ for the Police. Full training is given and experienced patrollers and Police provide on-going guidance.

We are observers only and take no direct part in Police incidents.

You may well have seen our patrol vehicle in the area.

If you are interested in learning more about us, or can help out with four hours each month, or even with some funding, please contact us. Our contact details are listed under “Organisations” on Neighbourly, our website www.bcp.org.nz...or... alternatively on Facebook

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Are you a recent home buyer? or a retiree in your own home?

The team Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals

Can you help? Email susan.edmunds@stuff.co.nz
