Get­ting cre­ative on crime preven­tion

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa High School stu­dent Dan­nie Peif­fer has a stern warn­ing for crim­i­nals. ‘‘Maui caught the sun – they (po­lice) will catch you.’’

Dan­nie came first in the Blue­light com­pe­ti­tion which is sup­ported by the Toko­roa po­lice.

Stu­dents were asked to de­sign a poster that best de­scribes Toko­roa and it’s peo­ple.

Dan­nie’s poster, orig­i­nally done on an A3 sized sheet of pa­per, has been en­larged and now hangs in the Toko­roa po­lice sta­tion foyer, along with run­ner up Brax­ton Carl­son’s poster.

Blue­light co- or­di­na­tor Kylie Ta­here said there was a high cal­i­bre of en­tries.

‘‘ We are pleased with the cre­ativ­ity of those that en­tered. It was great to see the dif­fer­ent de­signs not only pro­mot­ing Toko­roa, but also crime preven­tion.’’

Toko­roa Se­nior Sergeant Graeme Hill was im­pressed with the en­tries and con­grat­u­lated all those that en­tered.

‘‘I was im­pressed with the cal­i­bre of en­tries submitted. Toko­roa po­lice would like to con­grat­u­late all en­trants. In par­tic­u­lar Dan­nie Peif­fer for his cre­ativ­ity in in­cor­po­rat­ing a fa­mous Maori tale and weav­ing it into crime preven­tion, and Brax­ton Carl­son for her great work in sup­port­ing the mes­sage.’’
