Fluro against the wall
BODY:
Retirees, aunties, students, and future police officers are hitting the town together every Saturday night. But instead of racking up a bar tab they're walking Wellington's streets in bright yellow vests as part of New Zealand's first Pasifika Patrol. Daniela Maoate-Cox shadows patrol member Josh Pederson and discovers the fluro vest attracts all types of attention.
EXTENDED BODY:
Daniela Maoate-Cox daniela.maoate-cox@radionz.co.nz
Your aunty, cousin, and a police officer walk up to a bar but this time the joke’s on you.
They’re part of New Zealand’s first Pasifika Patrol, walking Wellington’s streets to make sure you and your mates don’t end your night with a sleepover in the cells.
On this evening the group of five weaving through the night market is smaller than normal.
Patrol co-ordinator, Josh Pederson, laughs it off as a casualty of the Rugby World Cup matches but in reality, the patrollers are out and about on top of a normal work week.
“Obviously we all have families, we all have jobs, we all have lives and this is voluntary work” he says.
The slightly warmer weather has drawn people to the streets earlier. By nine o'clock the patrol has already run into a regular, who serenades them as they walk by, and calmed down a drunk man trying to fight his way into a bar.
Many would be nervous about breaking up a street brawl but the patrollers are trained how to dissolve aggressive situations armed with just radios, fluro, and a calm voice.
“If we do see people approaching us and they are a bit louder than other people walking down the street, we can use tactics such as just standing and watching,” Josh says.
“What you’ll find is they’ll notice us watching and they’ll calm right down... usually we’ll get a wave, or a hello and a sorry and we haven’t even had to say anything.”
Josh’s day job is at Police National Headquarters and like many others in the patrol he plans on joining the police.
But the 30 or so members also includes retirees, students, and mums who have been sacrificing their Saturday nights since March this year. They mostly warn people of liquor ban infringements, prevent street brawls, and if necessary, notify the police of any raucous behaviour.
It’s the brainchild of Constable Loretta Hunt-Tevaga who noticed increasing numbers of Pasifika people getting into trouble.
“I came across a lot of Pasifika people coming to the attention of police so I thought it would be good to get a Pasifika patrol group together and although they don’t specifically deal with Pasifika, they are still there.”
She says there is something about having a figure that resembles your aunty or cousin that resonates with the public.
“These are really good people, they go to church, they’re students at university or college but it’s the alcohol that affects them in different ways which causes the fighting or assaults.”
The patrol’s positive effect on curbing naughty behaviour has led to businesses requesting it comes out on a Friday evening as well.
“There’s quite a few youth and street people out at that time.” Loretta says. “So the mamas will be out and I’m sure they’ll have a really good effect on the youth and hopefully they’ll be shown the respect they deserve and they’ll make some changes.”
But the focus isn’t just on wagging the finger at those who are misbehaving.
Josh says it’s also about building friendly and lasting relationships to gain the public’s trust.
“People know that we are there to help and they’ll notify us of a situation or what’s going on. They are usually willing to speak or sometimes they just ask who we are.”
“Our main thing is to be friendly and to approach people with an open attitude and happy personality and be there to help…We’re not there to be authority figures, we’re just there to help.“

EXTENDED BODY:
Prisoners at the Otago Corrections Facility near Milton are being trained in agriculture skills.
The facility has a dairy farm where prisoners milk about 350 cows on the 123 hectare property that the facility has owned for eight years. The farm’s milk production is above the local average and each cow produced 400 kilograms of milk solids in the 2013/14 season.
Gill Brown, the assistant prison director of industries rehabilitation and learning, says the farm has two main goals. “First it’s a working farm and we put some of our profits back to Treasury and secondly it’s a training farm for our offenders who want to look at going and working in the farming industry”.
Principle Instructor Tony Russell manages the dairy farm with the help of three other instructors. “We teach them a broad range of skills and with what they learn here they can equally go and get a job on a sheep farm or a cropping farm. So apart from actually milking the cows, everything crosses over to other forms of farming”
The farm is outside the prison fence and prisoners need to meet strict criteria to work on it. “We have had some delays getting people outside the wire with some changes within the rules, but when we have people out on the farm it’s very beneficial for our offenders and it’s great to see people doing things that gives them job opportunities” Gill says.
The changes to the rules occurred after convicted murderer and sex offender Phillip Smith fled to Chile after being released from prison on a three day visit last November. Now there are eight prisoners working on the farm compared to up to seventeen previously and they must all where security bracelets. Tony says the changes have been challenging for the instructors. “There’s probably been more actual input from instructors who would normally be training doing the actual work, which is not the ideal because we’re here to train and we’ve had to increase the workload on individual prisoners too”.
Barry is one of the prisoners who works on the farm. “I hope to secure a job prior to release so that’s part of my release and rehabilitation going forward, that I know that I’ve got the security of a job that’s been hopefully assisted by my learning, my behaviour and my work ethic on the prison farm and the prison helping me get restarted in my life, starting from scratch.”
