Map of the day: NZ crime

After having our beloved Paddleboard and three paddles stolen from right beside our house these holidays this map and information is of particular interest to Cam and I. We did not report the theft to police as our Insurance has a $1000 excess and the board was worth $800 and the paddles around $70 each.

The information below compares unlawful entry with intent (burglary, break and entry) in February 2016 with February 2017. Take a look and see where crime has increased or decreased during this month in regions across New Zealand below…
