SelectaDNA campaign received great response

The SelectaDNA Operation, which was launched in Pukekohe on Tuesday, August 18, is now complete after receiving an overwhelming response.
Staff visited and delivered 160 SelectaDNA packs throughout the Franklin area including a number of addresses in Waiuku and the surrounding rural areas of Otaua, Patumahoe, Waiau Pa, Glenbrook, Clarks Beach and Kingseat.
These were predominantly aimed at local rural residents who had previously been victims of a burglary and the packs were positively received by the homeowners, with Police members demonstrating the use of the property marking kits.
“The response from those receiving the SelectaDNA kits was very positive,” states Inspector Kay Lane, Area Prevention Manager at Pukekohe.
“The prevention message of ensuring all homes, sheds and garages are secured at all times was pushed by the attending staff, along with registering all serial numbers on the SNAP website, www.snap.org.nz.”
It is important to remember Police need your help to prevent burglary offending, much of which is opportunistic.
Ensure you secure your property, including garages, sheds, close your gates, and call 111 immediately with sightings of suspicious people and vehicles.

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.
