The Neighbourhood Support movement gains strength with every individual, family, street and organisation who joins. Together, we work to make our neighbourhoods and communities safer places in which to live.
We are eager to meet new partners and sponsors to discuss a range of initiatives and activities.
We encourage you to support the organisations and businesses who support our work.
New Zealand Police has a very close working relationship with Neighbourhood Support New Zealand and provides prevention advice to all Neighbourhood Support Groups.
The purpose of New Zealand Police is to ensure that everyone in our communities is safe and feels safe, ultimately making New Zealand the safest country in the world. We aim to have the trust and confidence of all, with the goals of reducing crime and victimisation, death and injuries on our roads and social harm in our communities. Our motto is “Safer communities together”.
At the end of last year a man with mental issues had wandered away from his caregiver in Papamoa. “We used the Neighbourhood Support email network and within twenty minutes I had four people from the Neighbourhood Support community tell me where they had seen that male and that led us on a path to his location.”
