Minister opens new $18.3 million Rotorua Police station

Police Minister Anne Tolley has today officially opened the new Rotorua Police station and Bay of Plenty District headquarters.

The new building, costing $18.3 million, is the sixteenth new Police station to open since the start of 2009, with a total cost across all of the projects of $145 million.

“This new station represents a significant investment in the Rotorua area and is a great new asset for Police and local communities,” says Mrs Tolley.

“It was an honour to officially open the new building, and to meet the hard-working staff who now have a modern, state of the art facility from which to serve the public.

“I was also able to congratulate Bay of Plenty Police staff for their excellent results, with recorded crimes down 7.4 per cent last year in the district, on top of a 7.1 per cent reduction in 2012.

“I want to thank everyone involved in the design and construction of this building, and wish staff a safe and successful future in their new station.”

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>>
