Arrest follows threats to Hamilton Winz office


Reiterating their warnings from yesterday, Waikato Police say threatening behaviour in relation to workers trying to do their jobs will not be tolerated following the arrest of a man in Hamilton today.

Area Prevention Manager, Inspector Marcus Lynam, said armed Police went to an address on Firth St shortly after 2pm following threats being made against the Hamilton East Work and Income office overnight.

"As a result of this a 42-year-old man was arrested and is currently being interviewed by Police.

"At this time Police would like to reassure the public that we are taking all such threats seriously and would like to remind people that they cannot and should not think they can threaten others without consequence."

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
