Po­lice crime pre­ven­tion ad­vice for the week:

Waihi Leader - - News -

Ru­ral crime has three dis­tinct com­po­nents; a mo­ti­vated of­fender, a suitable tar­get and a lack of a guardian. How­ever op­por­tu­nity is the key in­gre­di­ent. You can re­duce op­por­tu­nity by tak­ing no­tice who is out and about and talk­ing to them par­tic­u­larly if they aren’t lo­cals. Lock your house, re­move keys from ve­hi­cles, close ac­cess gates par­tic­u­larly to your drive­way and house and keep an eye on neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties. Re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour im­me­di­ately to Po­lice 111.
