Buller District Council

Show Support – Maintain Our Safe Community

2nd February, 2016

Community members in the Westport and the wider Buller area are coming together to show a united front in order to provide peaceful and constructive feedback to New Zealand Police over a planned reduction in services in the area.

There is strong feeling in the community that proposed changes will put public safety at risk in what is already a trying time for the West Coast.

Proposed service changes would see the LOSS of;

Our locally based Community Constable

Our locally based Youth Officer

Our locally based Search & Rescue and Alcohol Harm Reduction Sergeant

Karamea’s sole Police Officer

Gaining;

Four extra motorway patrol units for the entire West Coast Region

If you too have concerns about the proposed changes to Police services in Buller and on the West Coast, come along to the meeting and show your support for maintaining a safe community.
5.15pm – Thursday 4th February 2016 at the Grandstand, Victoria Square, Westport
