Strengthening Community Security in Whangarei

How a Collaborative Approach can Increase Security for Your Local Business

In the face of fluctuating crime rates Whangarei stands strong, upheld by our consistent community collaboration. For local businesses, this sense of community has never been more important: it’s a crucial part of maintaining security around town and ensuring peace of mind for our people.

100% locally owned and operated, Northern District Security operates at the heart of our community here in Whangarei. A trusted partner in safeguarding local enterprises, Northern District Security firmly believe that a collaborative security approach can yield positive outcomes for our businesses’ security and the overall well-being of our community. Read on to learn more about our approach to community security, or check out our case studies here to see this collaborative spirit in action.

Creating a Safety Net through Collective Efforts

Even in these uncertain times, local businesses hold the power to forge an interconnected safety net to amplify security and peace of mind throughout our community. By fostering open communication and cooperation, businesses can share valuable insights, best practices, and security updates.

It can be as simple as reaching out the people who work around you and looking out for one another: whether your business operates in-store or online, you can let inform your community about security risks and create a safety net in case issues arise. Collaborative initiatives, such as joint security workshops and information-sharing platforms, can empower businesses to stay ahead of emerging security challenges.

Whangarei’s commitment to community safety goes beyond individual efforts; our Citysafe program, jointly executed by the Whangarei District Council, the New Zealand Police, and the Whangarei Chamber of Commerce, stands as a testament to the power of collective action. With the aim of fostering a secure environment, Citysafe leverages shared resources, real-time reporting, and information dissemination, relying on the active participation of every community member.

For years, Northern District Security has been an integral part of the Citysafe initiative. Our dedication to making Whangarei a safer place is evident through our active involvement in foot patrols and mobile patrols throughout the week, operating both during daylight hours and at night. As part of this initiative, we focus on monitored and patrolled zones strategically positioned across key areas of the city, including the Central Business District, Town Basin, and the Hatea Loop Walkway, among others.

Every step we take aligns with the Citysafe objective: to ensure Whangarei remains protected and secure. With Northland District Security at the forefront, we contribute to the larger mission of fostering a community where safety is not just an aspiration but a tangible reality. As we patrol these core areas, our commitment echoes the collaborative spirit that defines Whangarei, underscoring our role as a trusted partner in creating a safer and more secure environment for all.
