Con­sta­ble moves shop


Po­lice hope a com­mu­nity con­sta­ble’s move from an of­fice to a lo­cal com­mu­nity house will allow them to work more closely with the com­mu­nity.

The Beach Haven and

Birken­head com­mu­nity con­sta­ble, Grant Kenny, was pre­vi­ously avail­able at a site on Sun­ny­haven Ave from 10am till noon on Mon­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days.

For the rest of the work­ing week Kenny was based at the Glen­field Po­lice Sta­tion or out and about.

But come Septem­ber 15, the con­sta­ble will work out of Beach Haven Com­mu­nity House at 130 Beach Haven Rd. He’ll be avail­able Mon­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days, from noon till 1pm.

The ‘‘clin­ics’’ held at these times are an op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers of the public to drop by and talk.

North Shore Area Com­man­der In­spec­tor Sunny Pa­tel said the con­sta­ble’s core role would not change but it was an op­por­tu­nity for po­lice to work along­side other com­mu­nity part­ners.

‘‘We’re look­ing for­ward to work­ing even closer with lo­cal com­mu­nity groups in our new lo­ca­tion,’’ Pa­tel said.

Pa­tel said the public could also speak to an of­fi­cer in per­son at the Glen­field Po­lice Sta­tion, visit the North Shore Po­lice Sta­tion on Park­way Drive or mes­sage the Waitem­ata Po­lice Face­book Page. In an emer­gency dial 111.


Birken­head and Beach Haven Com­mu­nity Con­sta­ble Grant Kenny will be avail­able at the com­mu­nity house three days a week.
