Police tractor attracts crowd
The Police tractor visited the Pukekohe Town Square on the Wednesday 1 October. Kids were delighted to be able to sit in the tractor, try on police vests and see PC, the mini singing police car.
Community Patrol Pukekohe, Pukekohe Police and Franklin Neighbourhood Support were among the organisations there on the day. Police were offering burgularly prevention tips to parents and caregivers.
“Identification of property around your homes, including items in your sheds and garages is vital ” said Inspector Kay Lane.
It allows Police to identify property as stolen and return to the rightful owners, and more importantly allow Police to hold the thief or receiver of stolen property accountable for their actions.
By setting up your own register on SNAP (www.snap.org.nz), you have a permanent record which you can supply to Police and your insurance company if your property is stolen.
“Prevention is vital in reducing crime,” she said.
Local business Norwoods Pukekohe have been transporting the Police tractor around the Franklin district over the past few weeks.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
