Plymouth Night Patrol (PNP)—a group of volunteer students at the University of Plymouth trained to provide welfare and medical support to students and citizens both on campus and across the wider city of Plymouth—were recently invited to a BBC radio interview to discuss the team’s dedication to protect their peers, as well as providing early intervention and promoting safe behaviour on nights out.

During the interview, PNP members Anthony Haynes (Volunteering Scheme Manager) and Wilf Wright (Treasurer) were able to share how PNP were commended for their invaluable contribution to safeguarding the local community and the vital work they do as partners of Devon & Cornwall Police, as well as their work alongside other services such as the fire services and the City Council.


For each individual member of Plymouth Night Patrol, it was nice and rewarding to know how valued they are in the community that is Plymouth. – Anthony Haynes, Volunteer Scheme Manager and First Responder

In the last three years, PNP have gone from 12 to 80+ members who not only support SU events but external organisations too. The team have helped support hundreds of students who may be vulnerable and prevented members of public from becoming victims of crime. We are incredibly grateful for their continuous support! 

Congratulations Plymouth Night Patrol on this very well-deserved recognition!
