Nelson Bays Police Watch Protecting our most vulnerable Inspector Steve Greally, area commander Nelson Bays By STEVE GREALLY One of the most abhorrent types of crime police deal with is child abuse and adult sexual offending against children. Late last year, as part of a restructure of Nelson Bays Police, I established a Child Protection Team. This team s sole focus is preventing child abuse and ensuring those who do offend against children are held to account. This week the five detectives in the Child Protection Team moved out of Nelson Police Station and into the Child Youth and Fam- ily offices. We did this so the two agencies could work closer together to better tackle the issues of child abuse and related offend- ing. These investigators are working to pro- tect our most vulnerable members of the community. Children cannot protect them- selves. We also want to ensure those who offend against them are held to account. The move to have dedicated police inves- tigators working solely on child protection issues signals a significant shift in empha- sis in tackling this type of offending. My hope is that this will enable both agencies to provide a better service to young victims and their families. Sharing the CYF office will ensure all of the people working to protect children are able to easily share information and that should translate into timely responses for victims and their families. I am extremely grateful to Child Youth and Family for coming on board with this initiative and hope that this collaborative arrangement results in greater opportun- ities to support families and keep children safe. Inspector Steve Greally is Nelson Bays Police area commander. Going for it: Craig Vail performs during the Nelson NZ Air Guitar Championships in the Shark Club. Air guitarists in action The inaugural Nelson heat of the New Zea- land Air Guitar Championships was held at the Shark Club last Saturday night. Wakefield man Todd Road Toad Ryan played along to Van Halen hit Hot for Tea- cher and took out the top prize worth $1000, including flights to Auckland and accommodation, to compete in the national championships later this year. However, Todd wasn t the only air ax-man who gave his best as this shot of Atawhai s Craig Vail proves.
