Good One is an initiative backed by a number of community and government organisations including the police, student associations, universities, polytechs, Te Whatu Ora, ACC, the Health Promotion Agency and Red Frogs. Our aim is to ensure people have great parties where everyone feels safe and stays safe.
The information you put on your party registration is used to help you make your party a good one. It is forwarded to your friendly local community police so they know your party is happening.
No details are stored on the Good One website at all, so other people using the Good One website will not be able see your party details or information.
Your local police will get in touch with you, usually by phone or email, to have a quick chat about your party and what you have planned. They may also offer to arrange a time to come out and visit you before the party.
The police may pop past your party just to make sure every thing is going okay. If something does go a bit pear shaped you can call the police and they’ll come to help out. Knowing the police officers (and them knowing you) makes it easier to sort things out.
It’s your party, you have host responsibility. You have responsibility to organise a well managed party and encourage your guests to be well behaved. Registering your party does not mean the police take responsibility for, condone or in any way endorse your party. It is completely your responsibility. Good One and the police are here to help where possible and do our best to make sure every one stays safe. If you have to call police for help on the night, they will endeavour to assist as soon as possible but this will depend on other work priorities.
Your party details and information will be added to the police information systems so we can pass it onto the people who will help keep you and the community safe. The only information we get is what you put on your party registration or give to us when we talk to you.
The people who will get your information are the police and possibly project evaluators. Police may send it on to a Noise Control Officer or the Proctor so that they know you have registered your party and know who to talk to if they need to. That makes it easier for them to do their job and can have better outcomes for you. Project evaluators will use anonymised data to help us keep improving Good One for you.
