Tru­ants watch

Central Leader - - News -

Po­lice are work­ing to keep chil­dren in school this term.

The com­mu­nity polic­ing team at Mt Welling­ton is tar­get­ing tru­ants with the help of com­mu­nity con­sta­bles and schools in the east­ern area, in­clud­ing One­hunga High School, Royal Oak In­ter­me­di­ate and One Tree Hill Col­lege.

Se­nior sergeant Hirone Ware­tini says po­lice will work with the fam­i­lies of reg­u­lar tru­ants to help them get back on track.

Po­lice will also pa­trol pop­u­lar hang-outs for those skip­ping school.

He says most young peo­ple caught cre­at­ing mis­chief are not en­gaged in any form of ed­u­ca­tion.
