Serious Incident – Northland

Posted on: August 26th, 2016 by Colin Smith

From Detective Inspector Kevin Burke:

An extensive Police search is still underway to locate a man who shot at two unarmed Police officers in Northland early this morning.

A large Police operation involving staff from four districts, Northland, Waitemata, Auckland City and Counties Manukau, is continuing to find the man who is believed to be in possession of a firearm.

We have completed our enquiries in Northland and are now speaking with witnesses there.

This remains a fluid investigation and we are now casting our enquiries into the greater Auckland area.

We are following a positive line of enquiry in relation to identifying the person responsible, and are doing everything we can to locate him and resolve the situation without anyone getting hurt.

The offender is described as possibly in his late 30s, up to 6ft tall with brown curly hair.

He was reportedly wearing a blue t-shirt with white writing and a brown zip up hoodie.

We are still asking members of the public to call 111 immediately if they observe any suspicious behaviour or anybody fitting the description.

NEW RED CROSS HAZARD APP FOR CIVILDEFENCE ALERTS:

 

Also get your phone updated with the …  New Red Cross hazard app in Auckland. Auckland residents are being advised to change their current civil defence phone alert system to a new national Red Cross hazard app.

Find out more about the Red Cross hazard app and download it.

Nationwide app for civil defence alerts

“We’re changing to a national platform for civil defence alerts and we’d like to encourage all Aucklanders to download the Red Cross hazard app so they can receive real-time alerts to help them stay safe in an emergency,’ says Councillor Sharon Stewart, Chair of the Auckland Council Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Committee.Auckland will join Northland, Waikato, Wellington and other regions using the Red Cross hazard app to push real-time emergency notifications. The Red Cross hazard system is also being used by other organisations such as Geonet and MetService.

“The new app is free to download from the Apple store or Google Play. After 30 June, the current Auckland Civil Defence device will be decommissioned and will no longer be used to pre-warn you if there is an emergency,” says Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management Director, John Dragicevich.

Getting information during emergencies

“The Red Cross hazard app will allow users to stay informed about hazards and risks through their mobile devices.

However Civil Defence uses a range of different channels, including radio, television, SMS and social media to deliver timely information to make sure all New Zealanders know what they need to do to keep themselves, their whanau and their neighbours safe.”

Kind regards to all,
