If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.

Hutt Valley Police investigating an arson at a school in September have now arrested two people in relation to the incident.

On the evening of Sunday 1 September, a large section of Upper Hutt College was extensively damaged by a fire, causing about $1.5 million damage.

The damage led to the school being closed for two weeks, which meant significant disruption for the community.

On 20 and 21 November 2019, Hutt Valley CIB executed two search warrants in Upper Hutt and one search warrant in Palmerston North respectively.

During these warrants Police located evidential material and arrested two people in relation to the arson.

Fires such as these cause enormous harm to our community and can cause costly damage.

Police hope these arrests reassure the community that we are committed to investigating acts of wilful damage and arson thoroughly and holding those responsible to account.
