Whitianga Police Report for the period 19 January to 26 January 2015

Whitianga Police Report for the period 19 January to 26 January 2015


The Waterways Concert over the weekend seemed to be enjoyed by most and visitors to our area should have enjoyed some excellent conditions to experience the best of the outdoors our town has to offer.

Of note the drunk driver apprehended on the night of the concert did not go to the concert and numerous other vehicles stopped had sober drivers to get them home safely.

We have had an excellent period of fine weather with our area pretty dry at the moment. There is a fire ban in place and that includes fireworks.

Please remember that when we do get some rain our roads will be slippery and extra care will be needed.
