Letter to the Editor - Western Leader
RE: Less crime in
The New Zealand Police
Reported crimes dropped 10.4 per cent across Waitakere between 2009 and 2010 and Police resolved 49.9 per cent of the crimes reported in the area.
I would like to go on record thanking our local police for all their hard work and dedication.
However, there were still over 19,000 crimes reported last year which as a proud Westie I will never be happy with. Our community needs to keep working together to stamp out burglary, assault and other antisocial behaviour.
So Westies, talk to you neighbours, offer to watch their place when they are away and if you think someone is in trouble don’t be afraid to go to the authorities.
