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.
