23 October 2019

A relatively quiet week as the ski season comes to an end and spring is finally here.


A Nissan Tiida parked on Glenfinnon Place was damaged when a key or similar was used to scratch the paintwork.


We have had several reports of family harm matters - investigations into them are ongoing.
Police apprehended and warned four local youths for consuming cannabis at Beacon Point Reserve.
Police were joined by local high school students who assisted with our breathalyser check points. They witnessed some of the apprehensions for excess breath alcohol over the weekend. It would have been nice if they could have seen their elders complying with the law. 
Unfortunately six persons were apprehended and have either been issued infringement notices or are appearing in court for alcohol related driving matters.
Please moderate your own behaviour so you do not join them. We like it when everyone has a sober driver to get them home.


Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle that crashed into a parked car on Totara Terrace on Saturday night and left the scene without stopping. Any information about this matter would be appreciated.


We had several reports of a male begging in the street and although his actions were not illegal they did cause concern to many. This person has a few difficulties in life and your compassion and tolerance would be appreciated. 


Enjoy spring and get the gardening underway.
Keep safe and well.
