Work being found for Maori wardens at Rugby World Cup

6:37 am on 30 April 2010

Police are considering how they can use Maori wardens to help with any extra work associated with the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

Superintendent Grant O'Fee, who's in charge of police planning, says wardens and police are working more closely after a police-led training programme.

He told Waatea News it makes sense to include them in planning for the cup. Some districts are more advanced than others and the response from Maori wardens has been extremely positive.
