#1635 ... Team Fluro

The Policeman and a group of Maori Wardens. We usually see them in their smart black uniforms on the streets and at public events, but not a lot of people know much about Whakatu Māori Wardens and their role in our community.

Just for starters, here's a surprising fact: Whakatu Māori Wardens work up to 30 hours plus per week, voluntarily. Much of that work is at night, and in situations that some of us might see as dangerous. This alone is testimony to the kaupapa, or guiding philosophy of the Māori Warden service, which is 'aroha ki te tangata' translating as 'compassion for the community'
