CitySafe Bylaws

Times are changing. There are many unique challenges that arise particularly when it comes to community safety. With policing ever stretched, how can these needs be met?

There are reported instances of crime here and there, some minor and preventable. By building awareness about such malicious incidents, one can decrease factors for misbehavior by enforcing city bylaws and having trained security professionals in place.  

The Whangarei City Safe Project - a leading example across New Zealand.

Successful Bylaws are often due to strong partnerships within the community, as such regulations are meant to benefit the place and the people. Collaborative approaches must always take shape among its very own movers and shakers, this is to make the community safe and less vulnerable to crime.

In Whangarei, the Citysafe program is implemented by the Whangarei District Council, the New Zealand Police and the Whangarei Chamber of Commerce. The goal is to have everyone in the community come together and do their part in keeping the community safe, and that can only be possible through shared resources, efficient real-time reporting and disseminating information.

For a long time now, Northland Security has been part of the City Safe initiative. We do our share in making Whangarei a safe environment by doing active foot patrols and mobile patrols throughout the week in day and night shifts.

 It’s all about making Whangarei safe through monitored and patrolled zones around core areas of the city such as the Central Business District, Town Basin and Hatea Loop Walkway just to name a few. Norther Districts Security has walked this path and with our every step, we have kept Whangarei protected and secure.

We patrol the streets to keep the peace, and we collate this data from all our patrol experiences. Whatever encountered is logged and reported and becomes part of an essential study in citywide security.
