Po­lice kindly res­cue ac­ci­dent vic­tim

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion -

Re­cently (Au­gust 5, 2011) one of our clients was due to move to Mata­mata into her newly pur­chased prop­erty. Un­for­tu­nately be­fore she left Auck­land she was in­volved in a car ac­ci­dent. Stranded, with her fur­ni­ture al­ready on its way to Mata­mata, she was at a loss as to how she was go­ing to get here. Her car was not drive­able. Thank good­ness the po­lice came to her res­cue; an Auck­land of­fi­cer drove her through to the Ngatea turn-off and then the Mata­mata Po­lice kindly col­lected her and dropped her to her new place.

This was above and be­yond the call of the duty for the po­lice.

We feel we need to draw at­ten­tion to this and give the po­lice the pat on the back they de­serve.
