Good response to community kiosk
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.
