The Auckland City District stretches between Herne Bay and Freeman's Bay to the north, St Heliers to the East, Onehunga in the south and Avondale in the west. It includes Waiheke and Great Barrier Islands.
Auckland City District is the centre of the Auckland metropolitan area. Geographically, Auckland City District is the smallest of the 12 Police districts, but it has the largest population.
It employs nearly 1,000 staff, many of whom, such as those in the Air Support Unit, Maritime Support Unit and Dog Section, also work in neighbouring districts.
For district staffing figures please refer to the Annual Report which can be found on the Publications and Statistics page.

Adult Sexual Assault Team
The Auckland City District Adult Sexual Assault Team was established in 2006 to provide a more efficient and effective way of investigating complaints of adult sexual assault and to ensure that victims receive a first class Police service. Our close working relationships with the crisis support and counselling service - Auckland Sexual Abuse HELP - and medical services, Sexual Abuse Assessment and Treatment Services (SAATS), mean we can provide victims with avenues to gain quality support services for help with treatment after abuse. As a result of bringing these components together, the Adult Sexual Assault Team is able to:
- provide quality and best practice investigations for adult sexual assault complaints
- provide a tripartite approach to the investigation of allegations and treatment of the victim
- provide access to quality aftercare support services.
