Toko­roa Po­lice

It’s ball sea­son and both Toko­roa High School and For­est View High School put up a good front for po­lice.

Se­nior Sergeant Graeme Hill said it was a quiet weekend.

‘‘It was pretty good over the weekend for our ball par­ties, no ma­jor dis­or­der,’’ he said.

A ‘‘slight’’ in­crease in the amount of drunk driv­ers has been no­ticed by Hill.

Over the last two weeks, seven in­tox­i­cated driv­ers were pro­cessed.

In terms of bur­glar­ies, Hill said there has been an al­most 30 per cent de­crease com­pared to pre­vi­ous years.

There have been three re­ported bur­glar­ies in the last cou­ple of weeks.

‘‘It’s just a re­minder to keep their gears locked up,’’ he said.

Com­modi­ties that can be dis­posed of eas­ily are the most com­monly stolen.

Hill said com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the com­mu­nity re­gard­ing sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity has been good.

People should not be scared to call the po­lice if they have seen some­thing, Hill said. Pu­taruru Po­lice A quiet week in Pu­taruru is a good week in the eyes of Se­nior Sergeant Ja­son Shailer.

Shailer said there has been an in­creased traf­fic flow com­ing through the district.

‘‘There’s been heaps of traf­fic com­ing through South Waikato,’’ he said.
