There were 19 fam­ily harm in­ci­dents for the week. Four of these re­sulted in peo­ple be­ing ar­rested which were in re­la­tion to them as­sault­ing other peo­ple, mak­ing threats, and caus­ing dam­age to prop­erty.

There were three bur­glar­ies over the week and a 36-year-old Toko­roa lo­cal has been ar­rested for his in­volve­ment in two of them.

This was due to peo­ple call­ing us at the time who wit­nessed it. It is much ap­pre­ci­ated and al­lowed us to get him off the street.

He is due to ap­pear in court.
