Police Report 30th August 2018

Thefts from vehicles

Police have received several reports of thefts from vehicles parked near the school. If anyone has any information, please contact us.

P Plate Curfew and Passenger Restrictions

Over recent weeks it has been brought to our attention that a number of provisional drivers are either failing to adhere to, or simply ignoring some conditions of their licences, mainly the 10pm curfew and single passenger restrictions. We recognise that obtaining a drivers licence is part of growing up and becoming independent, however holding a drivers licence is a privilege, not a right. These conditions, like all road rules, are put in place for one simple reason, to keep all road users safe. There are studies (as well as incidents that have occurred on Norfolk Island in the past), that tend to prove that novice drivers are more at risk of having a collision while driving during the hours of darkness.

There are special provisions under the Traffic Act 2010 for provisional drivers to have their curfew hours amended to accommodate employment or other circumstances deemed appropriate by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. Unfortunately, hanging out with your buddies isn’t one of those circumstances, so we ask that our provisional drivers abide by the conditions surrounding their licences. The Traffic Act 2010 does not allow us any discretion when dealing with these breaches, so the only other option for us (apart from asking you politely) is to place you before the Court with the potential outcome being the loss of your licence for up to six months. We don’t want that…we don’t think you want that either.  


School Zone Speed Limit Reminder

A reminder that the 30km/hr school zone is now in operation from 8.00am to 3.30pm on school days. Please remember that it only takes some inattentive driving from one person for a tragedy to occur so please be vigilant when driving around the school.


Phone 22222 or 000 for Police enquiries, attendance and emergencies. Police officers are available 24/7.

Where did intelligence come from?

Thursday, August 30, 2018

A little boy went up to his father and asked: 'Dad, where did my intelligence come from?' 

The father replied. 'Well, son, you must have got it from your mother, cause I still have mine.' 

'Mr Clark, I have reviewed this case very carefully,' the divorce Court Judge said, 'And I've decided to give your wife $775 a week,' 

'That's very fair, your honour,' the husband said. 'And every now and then I'll try to send her a few bucks myself.'

A phone call each day to check you are ok

Friday, August 24, 2018

Red Cross Norfolk Island can provide you with a daily telephone call to check on your wellbeing, through a service known as Telecross. This call provides peace of mind if you are at risk of an accident or illness,  that may go unnoticed for a period of time.

The Red Cross volunteer will check to see that you are well, and provide a friendly voice to wake up to each day.

Telecross is for people that live alone and are a risk of an accident. In particular those who are frail and aged, are housebound or are recovering from an illness or accident. Telecross is also available to carers. When family and carers are away, Telecross can be used on a temporary basis.

A friendly volunteer makes a call each morning year round. If the call is not answered, Red Cross will take action to make sure the person is okay. The calls provide reassurance, as well as help to maintain independence.

For more information about accessing Telecross as a client, please phone Julie on 22974. The Telecross service is provided by Red Cross groups throughout Australia.
