Changes to Counties Manukau Police

Changes to Counties Manukau Police

Counties Manukau Police have recently invested in two state of the art police stations in Otahuhu and Ormiston. With these stations now operational, and following a process of community engagement, it has been determined that the Otara and Papatoetoe police stations are now surplus to Police requirements.

District Commander, Superintendent John Tims says prevention is the main focus for New Zealand Police and this means having Police officers visible in communities.

"Rather than Police staff being in buildings in front of computers, our recent initiatives have been about increasing the amount of time staff are out and about in the neighbourhoods they serve.

For example, the recent introduction of iphones and ipads to frontline officers enables our staff to access computer systems and complete paperwork whilst out in the field.

“By being out in the community at all times we can actively target our known offenders, meet the needs of our victims and work hard at preventing crime in known hotspots. It is the Police staff working in our communities that help to keep people safe, rather than the locations of buildings.”

Police are more accessible than ever before. There are a number of ways members of the community can contact Police in addition to visiting the Manukau City, Otahuhu and Ormiston police stations, including:

• Ringing the Crime Reporting Line, available 24/7 for non-urgent calls (accessed by calling your local Police Station)
• Accessing the Police website www.police.govt.nz
• facebook www.facebook.com/Counties.Manukau.Police
• twitter twitter.com/ManukauPolice

“This is a really exciting time for New Zealand Police. We are a professional world class Police service at the forefront of preventative Policing. Working together with our communities and partners we will make Counties Manukau a safe place to live, work and visit,” said Mr Tims.

No constabulary staff will be lost through these station changes. Police staff from the two stations will relocate to their new premises from 30 June 2013. The Otara and Papatoetoe Local Board of Auckland Council are also working collaboratively with Police to find suitable shared facilities in Otara and Papatoetoe.
