FAREWELL BRIAN HARTLEY 
Brian Hartley

Retired Police Superintendent Brian Hartley left us suddenly, aged 84, on 14 August 2022. The team here at the Police Managers' Guild Trust would like to extend our most sincere condolences to Brian's Family, Friends, Colleagues and anyone lucky enough to have known him. 

Brian was the Driving Force behind the formation of the PMGT in 1997, a Trustee since the PMGT was formed and was elected a Life Member in 2019.

Under his careful and diligent guidance, the PMGT has donated over $3,500,000 to the victims of crime and produced education to benefit millions of Kiwis.

Brian's extraordinary example and legacy is one that will further motivate us to stop crime and save lives.

GUILD NEWS

The New Zealand Police Managers’ Guild Trust are proud to have helped the NZ Fiji Schools Rugby Sevens in reaching their financial goals to allow young Fijian boys from across the country to come together and play a game that they love whilst honouring their heritage. 

Whilst Fiji did not win (NZ Condors won both boys & girls competitions), the NZ Fijians never gave up, scoring the last try of the match through Ratu Kuli Naleisomosomo within the last minute. We are convinced there is an abundance of future Fijian stars with the team. 

The boys blasted out a note or two at the powhiri for the team which was an exceptional event in itself and the team are now taking the opportunity to review what they did well, what could have been done better, and are planning to win the title in the next edition of the World School 7’s in December 2022. We have every confidence that the boys will do an astounding job. 

‘’I therefore wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the part you and the NZ Police Managers Guild Trust played in helping us. What we did would not have been possible without your very kind support. Again a big Vinaka vakalevu from our entire NZ Fiji Schools 7’s squad’’ - Inspector Jim Wilson.

COMMUNITY GRANTS

Our latest community grant, Blake Paynter was the recipient of our NZPMGT grant to assist him with advancing in the sport of rowing with a view of gaining a scholarship to study in the United States. 

In March 2021, Blake was titled the 6th fastest under-18 single scull rower in New Zealand. Following that, his rowing times and on-water speeds are alongside the fastest junior rowers in New Zealand. 

As of 19th January 2022, Blake was able to commence study at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida USA. He has received an athletic scholarship to be a part of a rowing team and is lined up to be in the stroke seat of their top eight. 

We also congratulate Blake on maintaining a high standard in his academic school work and scoring in the top 7% in his SATs. This means he has also been awarded an academic scholarship from the university and has selected to study Business for a 4-year degree.

‘’The journey to achieve this has been filled with hard work, perseverance, and cannot be achieved without the support of many people including the kind support from the New Zealand Police Managers Guild Trust. Our family would like to express that we are very thankful for the support you have given Blake and hope you can feel the same level of proudness that we feel as parents of him.  When he is racing, you can feel that you are in the boat with him and part of the team.’’ - Marc Paynter and family.

Your donations help us to continue to offer practical help to people and families wishing to reach their goals.

A new text scam is targeting worried parents.

The "Hi Mum" scam, which recently plagued Australia, involves a message claiming to be the victim's child. The scammer claims they have lost their phone, and desperately need money.

NetSafe chief online safety officer Sean Lyons says The best way to avoid the scam was to not panic.

"It really is about taking a moment to stop, think, and breathe," Lyons said. "It could be quite an emotional moment, where a child reaches out and says: Mum, dad, I'm in trouble."

But that emotion is exactly what the scammer wants, he said.

The next step is to verify the sender by getting in touch with your child.

"Call them, get in touch with them via some other channel," Lyons said. "Something that you know is a way of contacting them, and say: is this you? What's going on?"

"The more pressure you put somebody under, the less time they have to think rationally and do their due diligence."

NetSafe and government agency CERT NZ allow victims to report scams and keep lists of common tactics.

A local FB scam I picked up on a couple of years ago when an old neighbor re added me on FB (along with other friends as their fb profile picture and friends list were visible to all) with the same profile picture etc, then fb messaged me saying they needed help and if I had a ware house or Kmart near me(I couldhave but didn'twant to wastemy time playing them along as I was busy gardening for a friend). I thought 'this is odd so I called his copyed profile ON FB messenger. They said they couldn't answer. I then called his personal ph#. He was in a Vodafone meeting. This scam has been happening to many over the past couple of years all I can advise as I have advised many this has happened to. MAKE SURE YOUR PROFILE PICTURES(data), FRIENDS LISTS ARE ALL KEPT PRIVATE AS THEY ARE JUST DUPLICATING YOUR ACCOUNT PRETENDING TO BE YOU.

Every year in New Zealand over 13,000 children under five go to hospital with injuries and 40 per cent of these are from falls," Plunket Hawke's Bay area manager Sarah Mulcahy said.

A coroner this week highlighted the need to secure heavy objects after a toddler was killed by a falling television set.

The 3-year-old Invercargill boy died from massive head injuries after the 60kg television toppled off a chest of drawers in his parents' bedroom as he tried to turn it on last July.

Coroner Christopher Devonport said the death was a terrible tragedy and timely warning to parents to secure heavy objects.

Ms Mulcahy said there were three key things Hawke's Bay parents could do to help prevent falls.

"Changing children on the ground, or making sure one hand is always on their child when they're on a high surface, having barriers at both the top and bottom of stairs, and not using baby walkers. They're dangerous because they can tip over, fall down stairs or move quickly into danger such as towards a heater or stove."

"You can't - in spite of the fact you'd probably like to - watch them every second that they are around.

"It's about doing the best that you can’’ says Plunket.

A survey of 12- to 19-year-olds shows a link between amount of alcohol being drunk and areas where poverty is a problem.

Adolescents living in the most deprived areas in New Zealand drink almost twice as much alcohol than their peers living at the other end of the scale, a joint study has found.

Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark and Massey University surveyed 1144 adolescents aged between 12 and 19 living in New Zealand across 10 area deprivation levels, 1 being the least deprived.

Their paper published in Health & Place found that at the poorer end of the scale, teenagers drank an average of 96.2ml of pure alcohol or 6.4 serves on each drinking occasion, while t the least deprived adolescents drank 50.6ml or 3.4 serves.

A public health worker on alcohol issues for Otara Health, Poutoa Papali'i hopes the recently passed Alcohol Law Reform legislation, which opens the way for greater local input in to policy development and liquor licensing decisions will finally deal a huge blow to the density of off-licences in South Auckland.

Under the new legislation, parents or guardians must give consent for minors to drink. It will be a criminal offence, with a $2000 penalty, to supply alcohol to under-agers without such consent.

Regardless of age and / or income, I am always surprised about the quantity of bottles sitting outside peoples homes on glass recycling day. I can not believe how much alcohol is consumed in many households.

An extremely worthwhile organisation that we are proud to continually support. Keep up your great work!

It happens to men to abuse and mind games and violence to sadly

unfortunately it happens to all culture religion age intelligence it doesn't discriminate

Firstly I'll acknowledge genuine cases, but the numbers aren't profitable enough. A lot of these so-called charity organizations are comprised of ghouls that feed off hyperbole and histrionics in order to boost their supposed statistics in order to MAXIMIZE THEIR FUNDING. If there's any minor squabble where someone is put in contact, these ghoulish organizations use CULT behaviour in order to isolate and brainwash these people into becoming cult members. Once someone becomes a cult member they'll be coached into using hyperbole and just straight lies, in order to further the agenda of the cult, ie it's all about the funding. Legitmate prevention is never the real agenda. The same goes for just about every so-called charity out there. For example, the heart foundation management is rubbing their hands with glee at the present time.
