New temporary police station opens in Rangiora

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Rangiora’s new police station is up and running at the corner of Southern Cross Rd and Kingsford Smith Drive.

The station will be at this location for the next few years until a permanent facility is developed.

Canterbury rural area commander Inspector Peter Cooper said finding a building suitable for a temporary station had been challenging and although the new station was not in the town centre, it offered improved facilities so staff could provide a better service to the public.

A public counter had not been available at the previous temporary premises on King St since early 2020.

The Southern Cross Rd location will be open to the public from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

The community is reminded to call 111 in an emergency, and that incidents that do not require an immediate police response can be reported to 105 either online or over the phone, Cooper said.

These masks are recommended by all the experts. I purchased two from our local pharmacy on Friday. Made in China.The warning on the back reads;- 1. The mask does not eliminate the risk of contracting any disease or infection. 2. Improper use may lead to illness or even death. 3. Some materials in direct contact with skin may cause allergic reactions or even anaphylaxis in sensitive individuals. 4. for adults only. Do not wash. Whaaaat?
