Report on the Issues Relating to Policing in the Auckland Area
This report was given to the Minister of Police by the Commissioner of Police. The report covers information requested by the Minister on options to improve policing responses in the Auckland region. There are two parts that make up the main section of the report: a definition of the current situation in Auckland City, and the assessment of potential solutions by the Commissioner.
The specific terms of reference were to address: the wider context for policing in Auckland; crime trends in Auckland, and strategies which address these offending patterns; resource allocation processes, staff recruitment, retention and deployment issues, and associated financial and administrative arrangements; management and administrative structures, especially operational and administrative command arrangements; and the need for community engagement in police strategies.
