Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

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.
