History

Neighbourhood Support is an international non-profit organisation, started by the New York City Police in 1977 in response to rising crime.  Originally called “Neighbourhood Watch”, the collaboration between police and community leaders was so successful that it spread rapidly to Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Neighbourhood Support North Shore was established in 1993, and became an Incorporated Society in 2001.

Today we are based in the Browns Bay Community Policing Centre, and cover Auckland’s North Shore from the Harbour Bridge to the East Coast Bays.
