Newmarket Crime Up 20%

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Newmartket Business Association general manager Cameron Brewer has pointed out that crime statistics for the Newmarket area show that crime in the past 5 years has increased by over 20% – and that’s just reported crime.

I think we all hoped that Annette King might recognise there is a problem with the NZ Police and that is a significant lack of them. Unfortunately she seems to be producing the same self fulfilling figures that George Hawkins lead the force down the drain with:

Mrs King told the Weekend Herald that the frontline police numbers had increased by 1400 since 1999. As part of the confidence and supply agreement with New Zealand First, a further 1000 police would be provided by 2010
