Meet your lo­cal polic­ing team

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa Po­lice will be out and about over the next two weeks in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the com­mu­nity parked in their big bus.

The mo­bile sta­tion will be manned by Com­mu­nity Con­sta­ble Jaks Sher­wood, Maori Li­ai­son of­fi­cer Brian Ni­cholas and Toko­roa Po­lice In­tel­li­gence per­son Emma Bai­ley.

‘‘If you see us parked in your area come over for a cup of tea and a chat.’’ Mrs Sher­wood said.

‘‘ We can help re­fer peo­ple to dif­fer­ent agen­cies if needed. Peo­ple can also report in­for­ma­tion on crime anony­mously.’’

On Mon­day the of­fi­cers were in the Tainui/Lake area talk­ing to the lo­cals, fo­cus­ing on crime preven­tion and the SNAP project (se­rial num­ber ac­tion project) which en­ables res­i­dents to mark valu­able house­hold items with se­rial num­bers.

The bus will give mem­bers of the com­mu­nity easy ac­cess to po­lice and also to act as a de­ter­rent for random acts of crime or other in­ci­dents.

The bus will be part of an in­creased po­lice pres­ence in the com­mu­nity with the as­sis­tance of the Toko­roa Com­mu­nity Pa­trols.

PREVEN­TION: Maori Li­ai­son po­lice of­fi­cer Brian Ni­cholas, Com­mu­nity Con­sta­ble Jaks Sher­wood and Po­lice in­tel­li­gence per­son Emma Bai­ley in­vite you for a cup of tea and a yarn.
