That’s the plea from Lyttelton Police Station’s new boss, Franco Lovich. Sergeant Lovich has been based in Lyttelton for three weeks and has noticed a reluctance for the public to report some offences. “Having spoken to a number of our community, (some) offences have not been reported to police due to the relatively minor nature, or perception, that for a variety of reasons there is no use in it being reported. “I would urge everyone in the community to report all offences to Crimestoppers as at the very least we can monitor any emerging crime patterns and direct police resources to where they are most needed.” He has identified three main issues in the area, including family harm and crimes committed by a small number of drug or alcohol dependent offenders. He said there also seemed to be an increased availability of methamphetamine in the area. Sergeant Lovich said his intention was for the community to “be safe and to feel safe.” •On the beat, page 7 House of Travel Ferrymead Come in and see us for all your 2018/2019 travel plans.
