New Zealand Blue Light is a registered charity and community policing youth program that for over 30 years has run programs and activities for young people throughout New Zealand free from drugs, alcohol and violence. Blue Light works closely with the New Zealand Police to:
Reduce youth crime
Build community partnerships
Build young peoples self esteem
Enhance community safety
Build positive youth and police partnerships
Blue Light aims to reduce young people becoming an offender or victim of crime and to build better relations between the police, young people, their parents and the community.
Blue Light encourages safe and healthy socialisation for young people with all Blue Light events being alcohol, drug and violence free; in today’s society who else can guarantee this and that is why parents and the community totally trust and support Blue Light activities for their children.
