We provide the essential connectivity service within our wider region enabling the continued development and growth of commerce and tourism.  Shannon Group strongly supports the National Planning Framework.

Police operation prevents drug related harm

first_imgNZ  Police 30 June 2014Police believe the true success of this year’s national cannabis operation is not the drugs destroyed, the guns seized or the suspects arrested but rather the harm that has been prevented from occurring in the community.Detective Senior Sgt. Scott McGill said that during Operation Lucy 105,000 cannabis plants were destroyed, 112 firearms seized and 640 suspects arrested.“The cannabis trade is a destructive force in New Zealand society,” Mr McGill said. “By destroying over 100,000 plants before they were harvested police have prevented significant social damage from occurring in our community.”Mr McGill said the arrest of 64 patched gang members or associates during Operation Lucy shows the strong connection between organised crime and the cannabis trade.“We are very pleased with the results from this year’s operation which show our commitment to restrict the influence of these organised criminal groups.”http://m.police.govt.nz/mobile-news-article/33655last_img read more

New mobile application by former Caribbean resident empowers citizens

first_img Tweet 9 Views   no discussions NewsRegional New mobile application by former Caribbean resident empowers citizens by: – September 22, 2011 Share Sharecenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Image via: columbiasc.netHOUSTON, USA – Sharon Hodge, sole proprietor of Trafalgar Solutions and former Caribbean resident, has announced the launch of a new smart phone application. The new application, titled iGot’em, will empower citizens and reduce crime and allow users to combat crime within their communities by uploading a recorded incident to the nearest law enforcement office. The application will notify law enforcement of the date, time, and location of the crime in progress. The combination of this information along with the general images taken by users will allow accurate reporting, while protecting the identity of the user.Hodge credits her creative spirit and her love for the Caribbean to iGot’em. Born in Dallas, Texas, and raised in the heart of South Central Los Angeles, she is no stranger to crime. “Where I grew up, crime was rampant, protection was light, and citizens were too afraid to come forward. This same behaviour exists in countries throughout the world,” said Hodge. Living in the Caribbean’s with her husband, remnant fears from her childhood brought an automatic sense of awareness and the will to fight for change. “By freeing citizens from the fear of retaliation, we might be able to catch some of our most violent offenders,” she said.Hodge is pleased to be expanding her role in the field of technology. She is inspired by Mark Zuckerburg’s (creator of Facebook) passion for change and, with her entrepreneurial frame of mind and success, she has a great future in the development and design of software.iGot’em is available for purchase through iTunes. Smart phone devices such as the Android and Blackberry will be added in the near future.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more
