Palmerston North, like any other NZ city, has areas where burglary rates a reasonably high.

Palmerston North, like any other NZ city, has areas where burglary rates a reasonably high.

If you live in Palmerston North or the wider Manawatu area, and would like to find out more about home security, particularly home security cameras, then come an say hello to the CleverLoop team. From Friday 21st July to Sunday 23rd July, we’ll be at the Manawatu Home Show with a great booth and lots of helpful info. Whether you are planning a new build, doing a renovation, or simply want to better secure your current home, we’d love to have a chat.

Remember, CleverLoop is great for home owners as well as for people who are renting. Easy to install, and just as easy to take with you when you move to a new house or rent a new flat, CleverLoop gives you protection from burglary without the install pain and cost that comes with a lot of alarm systems. So if you’re a student in Palmy studying at Massey Uni, then there is an easy way to look after your gear as well. As the Police said in their 2016 campaign to reduce burglaries in student areas ”save your tears, lock up your gears”. We say add a camera so you can watch over it too!

As for the Palmy break and enter stats, well, the city has the fourth highest burglary rate per-capita in NZ, with about 1450 commercial and home break-ins per year. As with most cities, it depends on which suburb you are in as to how big this problem is likely to be for you personally. According to the NZ Herald Burglary Map, the areas in PN with the most burglaries, and the number of burglaries recorded from July 2014 to December 2015, are:

Takaro 233

West End 232

Roslyn 210

Palmerston North Central 203

There is then a bit of a step down to other suburbs that had less than 150 break-ins during the same 17 month period. These suburbs included Milson, Palmerston North Hospital, Highbury, Awapuni North, Papaeoia, Hokowhitu West

The Palmerston North City Safety Advisory Board has some great tips in their Burglary Prevention Guide. Whilst it’s a long read, it has lots of great ideas which could possibly save you the time and frustration that goes with dealing with the aftermath of a break-in.

Anyway, we hope to see you at our booth at the Manawatu Home Show, which has free entry, so we can talk through how CleverLoop technology can also help with burglary prevention.
