About 50 people turned up at Woodlands Estate for the locally-called Crime-stop Hui held last Saturday.
Organiser Jeremy Jones said there was support for setting up a Community Patrol in Gordonton, Taupiri, Orini and Whitikahu areas.
“And great encouragement from our district council and local police, who are more than willing to support us with this process.”
Many good questions were asked. “Many of us have gone away with valuable new learning and a solid reminder of how committed we all are to crushing crime and creating safer communities for our whanau.”
He hopes to see a Community Patrol Team up and running soon and will hold a meeting on this soon.
If you were unable to make it to the Hui but would like to know more or be part of the team, contact Jeremy on 021 028 90545.
