Congratulations to our Hutt City Safe City Ambassador team, who recently won a Safe City award for their contribution towards reducing alcohol related harm in Hutt City.

The team reduce problems in public spaces and provide support to people in the community.  Patrolling Hutt City's hotspots from 1400 hours to 0100 hours every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.  They check a range of sites, alerting police to antisocial or criminal behaviour, reporting graffiti and lighting that is not working.  They also help members of the public with everything from providing directions, to assisting people who feel unsafe.

Team leader Lawrence Joe say the Safe City Ambassadors have become well-known and respected by Police, retailers and the public:  "we all enjoy helping to make Hutt City a safer place".
