Auckland Police to host public Open Day

Auckland City

Auckland City, Waitemata and Counties Manukau Police are joining forces to host a public Open Day at the ASB Showgrounds this Sunday.

The Open Day will have something for everyone, according to Assistant Commissioner (Districts) John Tims.

“All three police districts in Tamaki Makaurau have come together to host this Open Day and it will have a range of activities showcasing the diverse roles and teams within Police.

“This isn’t your standard Open Day event, along with the displays and information on different Police teams and recruitment, our ever popular Police Dog teams, will be there, along with our Armed Offenders Squad and Police Horse team.

“Our colleagues from Fire, St John, Airport Rescue, and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter will be joining us, along with our very own Eagle helicopter.

“We also have cultural performances from local school and community groups, the Police choir, Police Indian dances and our Police Hip hop dancers. 

“There will also be a chance for anyone interested in a career in the Police to have a go at aspects of the Physical Competency test and recruit testing plus a few more activities across the day.

“We’re planning for a great day and I would encourage anyone keen on having a behind the scenes look at Police or joining us as a recruit to come along and meet some local officers,” says Assistant Commissioner Tims.
