No. 396 October 2015

Welcome to the October issue of Ten One.

In this issue, we see yellow with the latest roadside safety initiative; get a look at the new Wellington mobile police base; find out how a community has rallied to help a treasured police officer; and learn why a young Bougainvillean will be growing up with a Kiwi cop’s name.

And don't forget Police Open Day on Sunday 18 October, when we will be opening our doors so you can meet your local police officers, see technology in action, see demonstrations by specialist groups and much, much more. Go to http://www.police.govt.nz/openday for details of what's happening in your district.
