Titahi Bay Civil Defence » Police - Western Suburbs Community Base at Titahi Bay
Hours of Business: Monday – Friday 10am -4pm
Nestled amongst the Whitehouse Road shops is the Western Suburbs Community Base at Titahi Bay, established in July 2008.
It has become an important feature of the Bay and whilst initially set up as home base for a local community constable, today it is supported by an impressive volunteer count of 25, who work in 3 hour shifts to ensure the base is always open to the public.
Community policing in it's ultimate form is centred around the philosophy of everyone being the eyes and ears of our community when dealing with local crime and safety. It involves problem solving and working with government, non-government and community groups in a coordinated way to reduce crime and road trauma.
But more importantly this approach has become the heart of community policing throughout New Zealand and is a concept that is becoming integrated into all aspects of Police work.
Local Constable Hemi Tito is supported by the help of David & Judy Tuck who are the coordinators for the Community Base. They are always on the look out for more volunteers to help out with manning the base during the week, and would ideally like to establish a regular Saturday morning roster.
The success of the Community Base relies on people with local knowledge making a difference to their community, they have regular meetings and social get together and consider themselves very much a team.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Community Base, call David or Judy on the above number.
Business can be a club, an educational entity or a business of any kind. An Individual is a private person.
