Police tractor idles in town
On October 4, a large group of children on school holidays flocked to the Pukekohe Town Square to see the police tractor along with a singing police remote control car, while parents were given advice at the police prevention stand.
Children were able to collect pictures for colouring in, dress up in police uniform for photos and take their own fingerprints, while police offered burglary prevention advice to the adults.
The prevention advice focussed on securing your prop- erty, including sheds and garages, which Franklin police are seeing targeted by burglars for hand tools. Police are asking the community to individually mark their hand tools, mowers, chainsaws and weed eaters by engraving their own drivers licence number on the handle. Police can then identify and return items when they are located during search warrants.
Police were accompanied at the Pukekohe Town Square by members of Franklin Neighbourhood Support and CPNZ.
