Hi John,


Please find below the answers to your query regarding the Ethnic Wardens.
I hope this covers everything that you needed to know, otherwise feel free
to email me back.

The answers below are from one of my staff who has worked closely with the
set-up of the Ethnic Wardens.




·         The ethnic wardens project has been established in Waitemata.

·         It is not a pilot project it is actually  reestablishment of
Waitakere wardens project which was established a few years ago, similar
project under different name ASPN [ I think Auckland Safety Patrol Network
or Asian Safety Patrol Network].

·         The selection requirement for interested applicant is very
simple. Be enthusiastic and energetic to help and support in your local
community. All applicants are to be vetted by police vetting department.

·         The role and responsibilities for volunteers are not imposed
specifically,  basically they are trained to be eyes and ears for police
and communities while keeping their own safety paramount. Wardens are
often requested to work on big events as patrollers where their visual
presences could contribute towards crime prevention.  At times they may
get requested to distribute crime prevention material e.g. vehicle safety
pamphlets in car parks  to educate motorists to  prevent theft from cars


Hope this helps.


Kind Regards
