Matua Community Patrols was set up as a result of incidents occurring in the suburb. After operating under the NZCPA and NZ Police umbrella the committee ceased to operate due to the reduction in vandalism and petty crime, reflecting the type of suburb we are very lucky to live in. As an Assn and as individuals who were involved in MCP we continue to keep a relationship with NZ Police and the NZCPA Bethlehem team who make occasional visits to Matua.
We strongly recommend that residents follow the CPA ethos of ” See something Say something”
ring 111 for any matter whether it seems minor or more serious.
