Crime prevention advice for the week:
It’s no secret that methamphetamine and other illegal drugs inflict great harm on our communities. Waihi is no exception.
People under the influence of meth and other illegal drugs are driven by the need for money to sustain their addictions therefore they commit crime.
Meth destroys lives, ruins families, threatens the safety and wellbeing of communities and is often a major contributing factor in serious crime. Police will do everything we can to reduce the harm methamphetamine causes and ensure those who make and sell it are brought to justice and don't profit from their trade in misery.
Police will also get help for users by making referrals to addictions services. As a community you can assist police in tackling the methamphetamine menace in our community by reporting any offending to police.
