Community Night Patrol
CRANAplus’ Working in Community Night Patrol Safety learning package comprises a range of resources and tools to promote a safer community night patrol workforce
In 2017, CRANAplus was contracted by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to develop a communications strategy and safety package to increase the safety of the Community Night Patrol (CNP) Workforce.
This included undertaking consultations and capturing the safety concerns of the workforce from 81 Night Patrols operating within the Northern Territory and six communities in the South Australian Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands.
The CNP workforce comprise of over 400 employees and the majority are local Aboriginal men and women who retain connection with country, family, language, lore and custom allowing them to maintain respect and cultural authority within their own communities.
They are often first-responders to accidents, injuries, fights and deaths within the community, defuse volatile situations and manage many of their own family and community disputes without police intervention.
