Northcote Community Constable
Ni hao, Nei ho, Annyong, Konnichiwa, Selamat, Sawadee, Xin chào, Namaste, Kia ora, Talofa, Hello!
I have been the Northcote Community Constable for 6 months and by now, most of you will be familiar with who I am. I will be writing a short message each month to highlight a particular problem or issue relating to crime prevention and security for businesses and workers in the Northcote Shopping Centre.
If you would like to meet me or want to talk to me about an issue, feel free to stop in at my office. Located between the Lib rary and Plunket rooms, my office is open each Tuesday and Thursday from 11am until 2pm. Due to operational requirements I may not always be there. However, with the aid of my trusty police volunteer, Keith, the office will always be open at these times. In addition, I will be in the shopping centre Monday to Friday “walking the beat” for about an hour each day. It is my goal to be as easily accessible as possible to everyone in the Northcote area, and this is how to contact me:

Northcote Constable Office: Ph 480 2160 (11am-2pm Tues and Thurs)
Mobile: 027 477 6239 (24hrs- leave a message if I do not answer)
