Several Burglaries in the Epsom/Royal Oak Area

Sergeant Smith from Newmarket Community Policing Team

Attention Neighbours.

Police Intel has noticed several day time and early evening burglaries in the Epsom/Royal Oak area.

In most cases the offender(s) have gained entry by smashing either a bedroom or living room window and reaching through to break the lock/latch.

The offender(s) are targeting passports, jewellery and small electronics.

Our Tactical Crime Unit is investigating and Front-line Police will be deployed to the area.

Police need neighbours in the area to be on the lookout.

Please be on alert for any vehicles or persons that you suspect maybe looking into/or coming on to your property.

Please make a note of the vehicle and registration, and the description of the persons and their actions.

Don't be afraid to call 111.

Your call may prevent yourself or a neighbour becoming a victim.

Stay Safe

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
