Who is behind Good One?

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.

How does it work?

What happens to my information?

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.

What happens next?

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.

What happens on the night?

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.

Who is responsible for what happens at my party?

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.
