The Pohutukawa Coast Crime Patrol was set up a number of years ago and aims to help the local New Zealand Police make our community a safer environment in which to live by providing support to the local police officers.
The Crime Watch patrol is a voluntary non-confrontational organisation made up of people willing to give some of their time, and take a little bit of responsibility within their own community. Any person who has a caring attitude to their community may offer their services.
Community patrols act as 'eyes and ears' only. We patrol the community in pairs, either by day or night and note anything that could be suspicious.
We need more people to join our team. If you have a couple of hours to spare on a regular basis (whether it be weekly, fortnightly or monthly) and would like to get involved in the local community, meet new people & help keep Beachlands & Maraetai a great place to live & work please give us a call to find out more.

The Pohutukawa Coast Crime Watch Patrol has awarded long-serving volunteer Stan Boswell (above right) with a Life Member certificate for his services to Crime Patrol.
Stan, who said he was “shocked and proud” to receive the award, has served with the patrol continuously for more than 15 years.
He has been instrumental in growing the volunteer force from about six members when he first joined, to the strong 80 volunteer team it is today with two crime patrol vehicles.
Crime Watch Patrol chairman Wayne Gemell says:
“Stan has been instrumental in getting the patrol to where it is today from small beginnings to a successful organisation that now covers Beachlands, Maraetai and Whitford.”
Stan was presented with his award by Wayne (above left) at the patrol’s annual Christmas lunch.
