Raglan Police would like to ask the community to be extra vigilant at this time. Please ensure that valuables are not left in vehicles and that vehicles are locked. Unfortunately we are experiencing a rise in theft from vehicles.
Over the last two weeks in the Raglan area there have been eight family harm incidents, five burglaries, four other dishonesty crimes and four drink driving incidents.
Obviously, it has been a busy couple of weeks, with not only the above incidents but water rescues, driving complaints, various other investigations, and the never-ending dilemma of found and lost property.
We would like to remind people that Raglan has a liquor-ban area. If you are not familiar of where it is exactly, jump onto the Council website. You can’t say we didn’t warn you, and it is an instant $250 fine, so please, no liquor in the ban area.
Some lessons we do not need to each learn ourselves, let’s heed the warnings of others. We are all human (as far as I am aware) and we are all capable of making mistakes – seatbelts, lifejackets and helmets can make the difference between a good story and a sad story.
Please ensure as the weather changes, so does our driving:
Drive slower than you normally would – it only takes a split second to lose control in wet or icy conditions.
Avoid sudden braking or turning movements that could cause you to skid.
Accelerate smoothly and brake gently.
From Andrew and the rest of the Raglan Team have a great week and remember to look out for one another!
