The Naval Volunteer Reserve are the part time people. The seagoing equivalent of the Army Territorials, Reservists are typically people with regular jobs (although many are also tertiary students or full time parents) who get paid for the spare time they spend as a member of the Naval Reserve. They crew the Inshore Patrol Vessels that protect New Zealand's waters. They also enjoy the opportunity to work with the regular force either at sea, ashore or overseas on peacekeeping missions. There are around 300 people in the Naval Reserve.
