Start­ing on a dis­ap­point­ing note po­lice pro­cessed three South Waikato peo­ple for drink driv­ing this week and would like leave this mes­sage: ‘‘If you drink and drive you will get caught’’.

Thank­fully, how­ever, the drink drivers aside South Waikato roads have been gen­er­ally safe with po­lice deal­ing with mi­nor in­ci­dents.

Domestic vi­o­lence has in­creased with po­lice at­tend­ing 12 fam­ily vi­o­lence in­ci­dents.

Although there were no re­ported bur­glar­ies in Toko­roa over the week­end, po­lice are con­cerned there were three re­ported res­i­den­tial bur­glar­ies last week. We ask the com­mu­nity to keep a keen eye out for sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity around your neigh­bours’ prop­er­ties and to be se­cu­rity con­scious by lock­ing up when you go out.

Po­lice at­tended an un­usu­ally high num­ber of al­co­hol-re­lated dis­or­der in­ci­dents over the week­end and are ask­ing res­i­dents to drink re­spon­si­bly, and when host­ing pri­vate func­tions to pro­vide food and look af­ter peo­ple when they have had too much to drink.

Please sup­port Toko­roa Blue Light youth pro­grammes; ring Darin Cos­tar or Kylie Ta­here at the Toko­roa Po­lice Sta­tion to find out more.
