Operation Speedo aims to keep the west safe
Surf lifesaving clubs are among the organisations participating in Operation Speedo.

‘Operation Speedo’ is a public safety campaign running in west Auckland this summer.

It aims to promote crime reporting, fire safety, water safety and civil defence awareness.

Keep your eyes open

West Aucklanders are encouraged to:

  • watch out for and report suspicious behaviour
  • look for fire danger such as smoke
  • be safe in the water by swimming between the flags and noticing unsafe activity
  • look out for natural disasters by being aware of unusual weather or landscape changes.

Please report any suspicious or dangerous activity. Early notification, detection or intervention could save lives.

Always stay safe

Help out if you can do so safely, but remember: your personal safety comes first. Call 111 to report an emergency.

“Operation Speedo involves the fire service, civil defence, surf life savers, the police and the local board,” says Waitākere Ranges Local Board member Steve Tollestrup.

“We want people to enjoy the west during summer, but we also encourage people to be vigilant and stay safe.”
