Getting creative on crime prevention
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.’’
