Police Crime Stats For Your Area

An interesting tool.  Go to….

http://www.police.govt.nz/crime-snapshot

and you can select your area and dates to see how much crime was reported.  Please note though much crime is not reported to Police so the real figure will be higher.  I even know serving Police members who have thrown their hands up in the air when trying to report matters from home.  Try and report matters to the Police even though it can be frustrating, it does help for proportioning resources and perhaps highlight a real problem area.
