South Waikato News - - NEWS - By GRAEME HILL

Toko­roa Se­nior Sergeant Toko­roa po­lice have had a busy week.

We are hav­ing a great re­sponse to the mo­bile com­mu­nity kiosk that is be­ing run by Con­sta­ble Jaks Sher­wood, Sergeant Brian Ni­cholas, Emma Bai­ley In­tel An­a­lyst, Con­sta­ble Sharon Monk, along with Janet Paiti from Vic­tim Sup­port/ Neigh­bour­hood sup­port.

The com­mu­nity has re­sponded pos­i­tively and has taken on board the crime preven­tion ad­vice be­ing given. Toko­roa po­lice are also pleased with the re­sponse to our drink drive mes­sage with po­lice stop­ping a large num­ber of ve­hi­cles over the past week and no one ex­ceed­ing the drink drive limit.

We do want to cau­tion peo­ple though that there are still too many tak­ing the risk and although not over the limit are still pos­ing a threat to other road users and we en­cour­age the use of taxis or courtesy ve­hi­cles. Toko­roa po­lice also re­sponded to a se­ri­ous in­ci­dent yes­ter­day on SH32 in which a 24 year old woman was struck by a ve­hi­cle. She sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries and po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the events lead­ing up to this in­ci­dent. Any­one who wit­nessed two fe­males walking on SH 32 be­tween 6pm and 7pm on March 17, 2013 are asked to con­tact Se­nior Sergeant Graeme Hill on 07 886 5189.
