Partnering with Chao Shan General Association of New Zealand, the police have produced a calendar featuring crime prevention advice. It’s aimed at the Chinese community living in Auckland, particularly newcomers, and is written in both English and Mandarin. Each month the calendar has advice ranging from protecting property, avoiding getting involved in organised crime and drugs, through to basic details about Police. For example, in February, there are details on how to reach emergency services through 111. It then goes on to say ‘you can ask for the language that you need, such as Mandarin’ They will find a Mandarin speaker for you.’ Readers are reminded that the same support exists should they wish to call Crimestoppers. The months also steer people toward relevant pages on the New Zealand Police website, such as advice for new arrivals, which includes guidance on how to reach ethnic liaison officers.
