Whitianga Police Report Monday 27 July to Monday 3 August, 202

By Sergeant Andrew Morrison

Monday 27 July to Monday 3 August, 2020 


There were three incidents reported in relation to Unlawful Hunting and it is not acceptable to hunt on private property without the permission of the landowner.

Anyone caught unlawfully hunting can expect to explain their actions in court and to have their firearms licence considered for revocation.

There is a lot of public land available for hunting, with further information available from local pig hunting clubs and The Department of Conservation.

Hopefully, everyone who wants to discuss policing in our community with the Waikato East Police Leadership Team with attend the meeting which is to be held in the Whitianga Town Hall on Friday 7 August starting at 6:00pm.
