The East Coast Bays is our local community, and we all have a shared responsibility to help keep each other safe. We know our neighbourhood better than anyone, which is why NZ Police encourages us to report suspicious or unusual individuals and activities.

When to call 111

Phone this emergency number and ask for police, if:

• Someone is badly injured or in immediate danger

• There’s a serious risk to life or property

• A crime is being committed and the offenders are still there or have just left

• You’ve come across a major public inconvenience, such as trees blocking a highway

If the event has already happened and there’s no immediate danger, call 105.
