From Checkpoint, 5:07 pm on 5 June 2024

Confusion reigns over claims police foot patrols in Auckland CBD have increased 60 percent since National came to power. Police Minister Mark Mitchell's used the figure in the wake of a law and order meeting last night, where a number of central city Aucklanders told him they dont feel safe and want more officers on the beat. But Auckland central's top cop is unable to confirm the figure. Auckland Central Area Commander Inspector Grant Tetzlaff speaks to Lisa Owen.
