Meeting to tackle crime

Howick and Pakuranga Times
18 February 2010

PEOPLE are being invited to a meeting to rejuvenate a Neighbourhood Support network. Members of Pakuranga and Bucklands Beach Neighbourhood Support Group say Sunnyhills, Farm Cove and Whiteacres are safe places to live and they would like to keep it that way.

The public meeting at Sunnyhills Primary School Hall on February 24 at 7.30pm is an opportunity for people to find out what Neighbourhood Support does, how it works and how it improves communities.

Itís a voluntary organisation run by the community for the community, with the backing of the police, but with present levels of support there is a real risk the service could be lost.

Inspector Jason Hewett, area commander for Counties Manukau East Police, community and youth sergeant Keith Olsen and Neighbourhood Support will give short presentations at the meeting.

Issues of crime impacting on the community will be covered, as well as how a little support can go a long way to create a safer environment.

There will also be a chance to meet the new community constable for Pakuranga at the meeting, which will be chaired by city councillor Dick Quax.

A question and answer session will follow if there is enough time.

Everyone is welcome. For more information about Neighbourhood Support, visit
