New role a big change for PC By RHIANNON HORRELL New role: Stuart Mottashed has just started as the St Lukes community constable and is enjoying a change after working for the police strategic traffic unit in Balmoral. Photo: JASON OXENHAM ' I'm loving it so far. I've always had a desire to go into a community role. ' Stuart Mottashed From chef to airline attendant to police con- stable and avid salmon fisherman -- there's defi- nitely more to Stuart Mottashed than meets the eye. The 39-year-old has recently taken the reins as the community con- stable for St Lukes and is about to enter his fifth year with the police. I'm loving it so far. I've always had a desire to go into a community role.'' His patch covers the western side of Sand- ringham Rd, including the area northwards to St Lukes Rd, New North Rd and Asquith Ave, along with Kingsland. Mr Mottashed says police work has been an interesting switch from his 10-year stint as a cabin crew attendant. You would generally see people in a good light -- they are happy and are heading off on holiday. But in this role you get to see people as victims -- it's more gloomy. The people you meet are dealing with the aftermath of something that has happened to them. With a passenger on a plane, you don't really know what's going on in their lives.'' Since joining the po- lice, Mr Mottashed has spent a period of time working in the general duties section in Avon- dale and for the strategic traffic unit in Balmoral. He says the Balmoral position involved search- ing for offenders, drunk drivers and dealing with specific problems. But with this role, people come to you. There's more investi- gative work and it's more of a PR role. It means I'm picking up files and looking for leads where things can't be dealt with on the day.'' The work is often focused around vehicle theft, burglary and incidents in the mall. That will be a never- ending thing but I can try to reduce it. I'm also setting up Neighbour- hood Support groups and networks with local busi- nesses and residents.'' Mr Mottashed is also a trained diversity liaison officer, which means he works with the local gay and lesbian communities and tries to bridge gaps among different groups. This involves dealing with domestic violence in same sex relationships and making sure there is someone to turn to. Colleague constable Tammy Dunlop says Mr Mottashed is fun to work with and full of enthusi- asm for the community constable role. He has worked hard to provide a quality ser- vice and has tripled the opening hours at the St Lukes office. He is per- sonable and full of ideas about how to improve our service to the public,'' she says. Mr Mottashed's office is on the ground floor of Westfield St Lukes, 80 St Lukes Rd, next to Farmers and the Hollywood Bakery. Email him at stuart.mott email@example.com or ring 846-3131. Police show appreciation A number of impressive Auck- land volunteers have received police awards in recognition of outstanding work and assist- ance. The volunteers -- who include Carolyne Jackson, Joan Mellick, Don Small, Margaret Till, Yvonne Turnbull and Mary Udy -- received the district commander's certificate of appreciation. Other members of the public have been recognised for assist- ance they gave to police after seeing a crime being committed or coming to the aid of an officer being assaulted. They included Patrick Knight, who tackled and detained a rob- ber in Western Springs. Mr Knight has since joined the police. Glen Innes teenager Emilou Hohaia was given an award for performing CPR on a 15-year- old boy after an assault in the Glen Innes shopping centre. She received no assistance from bystanders. The awards were presented by Police Minister Judith Collins, Auckland mayor Len Brown, assistant commissioner Allan Boreham and superintendent George Fraser.
