Mental Health Awareness Week
Great to see heaps getting out and dressing in yellow to do there thing and help support Mental Health.
Mental health is a matter that effects a lot of families and is very close to home for many New Zealanders.
So a big thanks to a fantastic local community who took the time out to show support and raise awareness of this.
Big shout out to all emergency services who helped out.
Police have again been flat out with domestics and alcohol-related incidents,
It’s sad to see that this type of work never seems to end, but we have put a number of family violence offenders before the courts.
We are appealing to the local community to help with any information in relation to a jetski that was stolen from a driveway last week.
A ute that was caught on CCTV in the forestry where its occupants were poaching with dogs has been identified, this was a great response via Crimestoppers and the police Waikato Facebook page.
So police will be knocking on a few doors very, very soon.
Police are investigating a shocking driving / threatening complaint, in which a dark-coloured Holden Commodore was seen driving on the wrong side of Port Rd, before stopping and abusing a young man who almost got hit.
Thanks to all so far who have come forward to help police get to the bottom of this matter.
Remember all information about crime and other issues in our town, please call either 111 or crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
Police were called to a suspected burglary job last week, as a local Whiritoa resident saw a person on private property.
Police caught up with the vehicle and located some foliage, this may have been a misunderstanding and no intent to commit a crime was intended.
When it comes to someone else’s property or local reserves, please ensure you get either permission from the local council or property owners, a knock on the door is also a good way to keep the police away.
Local Whiritoa residents are getting sick and tried of seeing quad bikes hooning around the local village.
Police will stop and either dish out infringement notices or even forbid riders who haven’t got the appropriate licence, so please think before you ride.
Labour Weekend is upon us and this is time that Whangamata ramps up so please lock up valuables and don’t give the crooks a chance to create more victims.
Have a cracker long weekend, keep safe and see ya out and about.
