Cops struggling to make ends meet

From The Panel, 4:21 pm on 7 September 2018

An Auckland officer says his younger colleagues are struggling to make ends meet, in a letter to the police association. It follows the news the police union has rejected an offer of a 2% annual pay rise, for three years.

The cost of living appears to be the problem, particularly in Auckland.

We ask the panelists if police need a pay rise, and whether this could impact the Government's goal to have 1800 new officers on the beat.
