In the wake of Auckland’s flooding, our community came together to create a plan of action.
Running around the community finding clues, completing practice Police emergency phone calls, and making emergency plans were just some of the fun completed on the day!
Being prepared for emergency is key, especially for whānau in vulnerable positions due to unstable housing and support. This event combined fun, connection, and community, while exploring new areas of South Auckland and creating an emergency plan to put in place for their whare.
Feedback from tamariki included “The police have been really supportive today. I love seeing them like this with us. I feel safe.”
The bridge building that occurs at events like this between NZ police, children and youth (all of whom have parents/whānau in prison) has been a huge success!
Thank you to Sgt. Suzannah Kimber and Senior Sgt. Mj Riddle, supported by fellow officer Hayley Jenkins!
