Suspicious Vehicle A white, 2002, Toyota Hiace, EKQ164, has come to Police attention twice during the past reporting period for offering services such as house painting and water blasting. Sometimes a white Ute is involved as well. If you see it in the area please report to the Police. Several citizens have been highly dissatisfied with their work to put it mildly.

Neighbourhood Support Pakuranga Bucklands Beach joined forces once again with the Police Community Constables and the Community Crimewatch Patrol to hold a very successful event at Highland Park, once again sponsored by Countdown.
Having been advertised beforehand in the local papers, there was a big response and the boys were kept busy all morning fitting security screws to registration plates. Over 200 cars were done until they ran out of the special screws.
Countdown were very much involved and supported the event with two gift baskets, raffle tickets for which were given to each person who had their plates made safer from criminals. Lucky winners were drawn on the day.
The next working bee is Tuesday 18th March at Countdown Meadowlands. 9:30am to 2:30pm. Allow 10 minutes for us to secure your number plates with screws that cannot be removed without a special tool. Cost? A donation of about $4 will do.
Make sure your car registration plates aren’t off and misbehaving on someone else’s car while you are relaxing at home!

The Neighbourhood Support Pakuranga Bucklands Beach team were out in force on the night alongside the ‘Blue Light’ trolleys in front of the Howick Information Centre. A huge crowd enjoyed the good weather and entertainment. We were kept busy handing out sweets for the kids and ‘Good Neighbour’ magazines for mum and dad.
