Auckland Story for 27 October 2010 - Constable Briggs and Scout

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:32 pm on 27 October 2010
Panmure Community Constable Janet Briggs is now patrolling the reserves or the "green highways" throughout the Tamaki area, from Panmure to St Heliers, on her 12-year-old horse Scout. It's no horsing around for this pair. On Scout's very first day on patrol, they pursued a man on bicycle who has been wanted for two burglaries. Unable to outride Scout, he was boxed in until back-up arrived and was subsequently arrested.
