The departure of the local police station from downtown Auckland has seen antisocial behaviour creep in, according to inner city residents.

The inner city police station was packed up in 2013, six years later the entire downtown station was moved to College Hill.

Pre-Covid, there were 65,000 people living in the central city.

Auckland City Centre Residents' Group spokesman Antony Phillips talks to Lisa Owen.
