Auckland Airport Police for August

03 August 2011

It has been a busy month for the Airport Police. One area that attracted media attention was the number (albeit small) of crashes involving pedestrians. It is perhaps time to remind all our visitors to take extra care when dropping off and picking up passengers, especially in the dark.

Then there’s Operation SNAP (Serial Number Action Partnership). This is a NZ Police community partnership designed to reduce property offending by encouraging people to keep a record of their asset serial numbers.

You can store information about your property at and you can access it from anywhere in the world. This means that if you are a victim of a crime, you will be able to give your insurance company and police a rapid report of your valuables, which may also enhance the chance of prosecution.

Finally this month, the Airport Police are running a survey of our users, starting with the International Terminal. We are seeking to establish the levels of crime, repeat victimisation and, of course, how you believe we are performing.

So far the response has been excellent and our customers are offering some great insights into this vibrant community.

Next month we’ll be talking about some logistical moves and of course a certain rugby tournament!
