By CHRIS HARROWELL INSPECTOR Chris de Wattig- nar is only in his new job for four months, but he intends to leave his mark before his time is up.Counties Manukau East Police’s acting area commander began his short-term assignment on March 4. He’s in the job until inspector Jim Searle returns from running Papakura Police in June. Mr de Wattignar, 38, will then go back to his role as Counties Manukau West Police’s crime prevention manager, a position he’s held for the past fve years. “This area is running really well and in terms of performance is doing well in all crime catego- ries,” he told the Times. “We’re achieving the crime reductions Police Commissioner Peter Marshall has asked of us and are putting a large amount of hours into the prevention frst strategy.” Mr de Wattignar, originally from Dunedin, has spent 14 years in the New Zealand Police. His frst posting as a constable was to Wiri in Manukau. He’s worked in a number of roles, including road policing and as a member of Counties Manu- kau Police’s criminal investiga- tion branch. Mr de Wattignar has served as the acting police area com- mander for districts including Tasman, Nelson Bays, Counties Manukau West and Auckland International Airport. To further his academic quali- fcations, he’s studying in his spare time towards a master’s degree in international security at Massey University. One of the main issues he and Counties Manukau East Police offcers are trying to tackle is the theft of motor vehicles in South- East Auckland, which is believed to be linked to criminal groups and youths. “The main thing bothering us is an increase in stolen cars,” he says. “We really want to get our hands around this problem and sustain the numbers at a low level.” He believes in treating the causes of crime and not just their symptoms. “If people come from a dys- functional family, they will need support if they have got prob- lems such as substance abuse. “Stolen cars are just a symp- tom of that. “We need to ask what have we got under here, what are the underlying problems these kids have, and who else can help them? “When we impact the crime statistics later on people will feel they can park down the street and know their car will still be there in the morning. “We want to prevent as many criminal offences as we can.” Mr de Wattignar believes policing is more than just a career. “I really enjoy my role as pre- vention manager and get a buzz when we make a difference and people aren’t being victim- ised,” he says. “There are a lot of changes happening in policing andIgettobepartofit. “I really enjoy strategy and implementing it and I like to do a role well and know my job inside out. “I’ve been lucky to walk into a high functioning area with great leadership.” New leader in top east police role "If people come from a dysfunctional family, they will need support if they have got problems such as substance abuse." -- Inspector Chris de Wattignar, Counties Manukau East Police acting area commander TAKING CHARGE: Inspector Chris de Wattignar serves as Counties Manukau East Police's acting area commander until June.
