Police increasing patrols in flood-hit areas

Police will be carrying out extra patrols in flood-affected parts of Tāmaki Makaurau.

With a number of people unable to return to their homes at present, Police are re-deploying available staff to help.

They will be conducting reassurance patrols on streets and at vulnerable properties.

We understand many people will be worried, and these patrols aim to help bring some piece of mind for those who can't yet get home.

Neighbours are urged to look out for each other and call Police if they see anything suspicious.

Call 111 if you see suspicious activity as it happens, or 105 if it's after the fact.
