Six Crime Watch patrols in east Auckland were drawing a lot of attention at the Botany Town Centre last Thursday.
Neighbourhood Support NZ Buckland’s Beach, Community Patrols NZ, Asian Safety Education and Promotion Charitable Trust, Asian Council on Reducing Crime, Botany Crime Watch Patrol and Neighbourhood Support Howick/Botany/Flat Bush have all combined to ensure the safety of the community, promoting themselves at every shopping centre in east Auckland.
They are currently on the lookout for new recruits both young and old to help prevent unnecessary crimes from happening in the community. Read the ‘Times”‘ article here……
The burglary stats are fairly static at the moment which is pleasing, but that’s still 62 upsetting incidents that help stress our community.

Welcome to the October 2016 issue of Ten One.
In this issue, we look at the new Child Sex Offender Register, see some of the stars of a police dog calendar, welcome our medal-winning Paralympian back to work, share a special moment at Police’s Memorial Wall and check in at a police station boxing night. In a special feature we meet Sergeant Rhona Stace, a veteran officer on a unique journey within the organisation.
