Rural Crime Up?

[from Margaret Fead]

I am sorry to report we have another crime increase.

To endeavour to make out suburbs and rural areas more safe and community minded. I am requesting that you encourage all members of your group to talk to their friends not just in their immediate area but elsewhere about joining Neighbourhood Support. I can offer signs, information packs as well as arrange to meet with you. If you are an area that has been hit this time or an area near you please contact me or your local Community Constable if you wish to hold a meeting of concerned residents. I work closely with the Police in establishing new groups.

Note: There is a lack of signs in some areas where I know there are members, also some signs are looking sad. I can supply both signs and stickers for your window and or letterboxes. Send an email. As I am delivering magazines around the whole area the delivery of signs either to you personally or your local Police Station can be arranged.

I do believe that having the signs up on the Power Poles, stickers on the letter boxes, and taking measures to help make your place unattractive to the intruders does help prevent burglaries. Some places have lights that come on (although the cats or cars passing close to my driveway set mine off). Burglar alarms but have a neighbour that can keep and eye if they are activated or a security company. (Mine has previously had every child in the street check my house).I do have it monitored. Some rural roads have clubbed together and put up security cameras. (These must be looked after and the information available if required. (I know of one instant where the locals did not know if the film would be available when the info on it was needed). I experienced hearing dogs barking at night. Ours included but just thought must be a possum set one dog barking then all the others around joined in. Not so a local farmer lost a lot of hay that night. It was lesson to be more aware of what is happening.

I have tried to be encouraging and I guess I am talking to a lot of the converted who have taken measures to protect their local areas. If the above only helps one family it will be great.

Let us all spread the word of Neighbourhood Support Rodney.

Thanks for reading this,

Margaret Faed

Lenzen Road Neighbourhood Support?

[from Margaret Faed, Rodney Neighbourhood Support]
Would anyone like to be responsible for a specific Neighbourhood Support Group in Lenzen Road as I believe this would help a family to feel safer in there home, by knowing their neighbours care – this is what Neighbourhood Support is all about.

Neigbourhood Support Group For Puhoi

After some discussion with locals and the recent dishonesty offending that has occurred in the area, I thought it was about time we started an official Neighbourhood Support Group in the Puhoi Community.

As a locally residing and working Police Officer and having had such a great response in the Ahuroa / Makarau area with their new Neighbourhood Support Group set up last year, I thought it was about time Puhoi followed before things get any worse.

The New Zealand Police are currently pushing for Crime Prevention Advise to be at the forefront of frontline policing and have seen some great changes as a result of this change of mindset. Ahuroa itself is a great success story and the crime stats show this.

If you are interested in hearing about how you can be more effective and aware of crime prevention strategies in your community, come along to the Puhoi Sports Club on Wednesday 5th November at 7.00pm for an informative and low key meeting and be part of making Puhoi a safer community together.

Look forward to seeing lots of you there and sharing with you some great ideas and stories. Kids are more than welcome.

Regards, Steve
