Policing ‘street by street’ working in Melville

The new community policing team in Melville, Hamilton, is showing positive results just two months in.

Do not respond to scams

Fraud Awareness Week 2010 kicks off on 1 March with the aim of raising awareness about how to spot scams, how to protect against them and how to report them (via the Scamwatch website) to keep others safe.


Early results encouraging

In its first four months of operation in New Zealand Crimestoppers took nearly 2200 calls.

Tip-offs put heat on drug dealers

Crimestoppers has got off to a great start in Tasman District, with nearly all of the actionable information received so far relating to drug supply, cultivation and possession.

Crimestoppers yields ‘juicy stuff’

Policing in London’s East End where talking to the Old Bill was a no-no gave Auckland City’s Catherine Gardner a firsthand appreciation of the value Crimestoppers brings to criminal investigations.

Organisations share one goal

Crimestoppers and Police can be a formidable team, says Crimestoppers CEO Lou Gardiner.

Operational policing

Taser rollout begins

The rollout of the Taser began in earnest from 1 March 2010, with operator training getting underway in each district, says Manager Operation Services, Superintendent John Rivers.

Incidents resulting in the deployment of Taser

Auckland: An axe-wielding man trying to smash his way into a car. Police later find a dead man at the address.

Award recognises courage

Constable John Cunningham has been awarded a Commissioner’s Commendation for the courage and professionalism he displayed in the Sophie Elliott murder case.
