From facebook today

"Just witnessed two kids on bikes sneak into a garage across the road and take some stuff in Addison, Bruce Pullman side. A reminder to keep your garage closed if you're not right there. The neighbour had only popped in to put his groceries away so it only takes a few minutes" 😔😔



We see so much of this when on patrol where garage doors are left up and car doors left open.

I was out on patrol with the Takanini NPT trying to highlight this to residents we were able to drive into driveways park, get out, take items of value put it next to the police car then knock on the door to explain that they could have lost everything to these opportunists



Please report any suspicious cars or people to the police they want to stop the crime before it happens



The motto we should all heed



"If it does not look right it most likely is not" DIAL 111

Don't think that you are bothering them it is our job to bother them with suspicious activity

You know your neighbourhood better than the Police



Have a safe day

Below is a notice from the Takanini Policing Team please read has important information

Crime Prevention in Takanini and Papakura North

Counties Manukau South Police have increased Police presence into Takanini and Papakura North to prevent criminal offending.

A District Prevention unit has been deployed to work alongside our Neighbourhood Policing Teams and residents will see more patrols in the area.

The public can assist Police to prevent crime by ensuring that your house and vehicles are secure.

Now that we have warmer weather this can mean that we leave our homes more vulnerable to opportunistic offenders who are targeting windows and doors that are left open. Even if you are having a barbeque at the rear of your property or mowing the lawns, take time to make sure the front of your house is locked and secured and the garage is also locked. It only takes a moment of inattention for someone to enter your property.

The same applies to vehicles, ensure they are locked with no valuables visible to opportunist offenders.

We also need public assistance if you see a crime occurring or see a suspicious person or vehicle in your neighbourhood. If it’s happening now then call Police on 111. If you have information to pass on about crime that has already happened, that can be done at your local Police station or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Do you want to be more involved in preventing crime in your neighbourhood? You could consider becoming a volunteer with the Community Crime watch patrols. These patrols are another set of eyes for police in the area and they are an effective crime prevention initiative.

We also have some excellent Neighbourhood support groups established that are looking for more members.

If you would like to be participate in Neighbourhood support or crime watch patrols or you require any crime prevention information please email the Takanini Neighbourhood Police team: takanininpt@police.govt.nz

Further information and crime prevention advice can be found on our Police website or Facebook page:
