Kia ora Greenhithe
Police have been pleased with the public’s response so far during this latest lockdown. Thank you. Now that we’ve all got the hang of washing our hands, can we all please follow the basic NZ road rules?
A little Valentines message –
Roses are red. Our uniforms are blue. Don’t speed to your date. Or we will stop you. (Smiley face)
Greenhithe had another good month in January with only a small amount of dishonesty crime reported, mostly theft from cars and burglary. Domestic violence is not ok. Get help.
The internet is an important source of information and means of social interaction, but it pays to keep in mind it can also present dangers, including online fraud, scams, bullying and abuse.
Here’s a few things to keep in mind:
On social media, read through the privacy options carefully, set your profile to private, and don’t post personal information online
Only give personal information to trusted people or organisations
Never reply to a scam message, even if you’re curious
Install a security program on your computer and set strong passwords
Be cautious when using public WiFi networks
Be mindful of what software you download and what permissions you grant to applications
For child online safety:
Know who your child is making contact with online.
Know which social networking sites your child is on and what information they are posting.
Talk to your child about the dangers of posting personal information online.
If you or your child become suspicious about a person online, stop contact immediately.
