Auckland businesses install ‘anti homeless’ sprinkler systems

From Nine To Noon, 9:05 am on 5 May 2017

One school and several businesses in Auckland's CBD have installed overnight sprinkler systems in their doorways to deter rough sleepers. The Chamber of Commerce says it does not condone the practice but it is an expression of frustration from business owners that the council is not doing more to deal with the issue of homelessness. Kathryn Ryan speaks with Chief Executive Michael Barnett, and Auckland City Councillor Cathy Casey.
