Upper Hutt Community Patrol won the Upper Hutt City "Health and Well-being" category in the 2017 Regional Community Awards on Thursday 3 August 2017.
The Patrol was nominated for this award in recognition for its anti-graffiti work it has carried out over the past two years. Thanks to all who have participated in this initiative, and particularly a big thanks to Patrick Gannon who started the project.
Upper Hutt Community Patrollers are volunteers giving their time and taking responsibility within our community to help the Police make Upper Hutt safer for everyone.
Any citizen who has a caring attitude to their community can offer their services - we're always on the lookout for new recruits.
We have links to the Upper Hutt City Council, Hutt Safe City and the Police sharing a similar interest in community safety. We also meet regularly for training and to discuss issues and opportunities.
