Crime in Waimakariri

Statistics suggest that North Canterbury is the safest region in New Zealand as far as crime is concerned.

We cannot, however, rest on any laurels because we know that there is crime in our community, and any crime is too much.

The Waimakariri Safer Community Council is working to reduce crime in our community and to this end organised a forum in Kaiapoi today.  The outcome of this forum, it is hoped, will result in a strategic plan that will help reduce crime in Waimakariri. 

One thing is clear: we cannot rely on the Police to do this unaided.  This is a matter for the entire community.
