Please be extra careful around schools and pedestrian crossings and if driving a vehicle reduce your speed and be prepared to stop suddenly. Children often get distracted and the excitement of catching up with friends again can often mean that they aren't always aware of the hazards around them.

New Year's Eve and alcohol

The Team from Bay of Plenty Police District

It is that time of year when many of us enjoy a few drinks to see the new year in. This new year please ensure you have a plan in place to look after your mates, particularly around water and alcohol. These two simply don't mix. Be a hero and don't let a mate drive or go in the water … View moreIt is that time of year when many of us enjoy a few drinks to see the new year in.

Be a hero and don't let a mate drive or go in the water after drinking. We want you all to see in the new year safely.

Please remember that if you are going away on holiday, let your neighbours know so that they can keep an eye on your property. Ensure doors and windows are secured and report any suspicious behaviour. For those that aren't going away, be vigilant and note down registration numbers of any suspicious vehicles and phone Police immediately if offenders are present. Police would rather respond to a call about a suspicious person, than find out later that a burglary could have been prevented if Police had been called. Note down serial numbers of bikes and electronic items and take photographs of any new and valuable items that you receive for xmas. This site is not a platform for reporting crime or suspicious behaviour to Police, that needs to be done by visiting your local Police Station or by telephone. If it is an emergency then phone 111 immediately.
