A Safer Auckland

To make Auckland a safer place to live, work and play, we will:

  • Advocate for increased police resourcing across the region, based on population and local police stations or “beat” bases, where required.

  • Advocate for improved collaboration between Police, Auckland Council, central government and community organisations to deliver better wrap around services to those who need it.

  • Consider a new Public Safety Bylaw to replace the existing eight-year-old Public Safety and Nuisance Bylaw.

  • Establish a Business Improvement District (BID) Safety Project to work with BIDs on their safety upgrades where government support is insufficient.

  • Expand Local Board safety responsibilities. Establish a contestable safety fund to support business and resident associations and other community group safety initiatives e.g., CCTV cameras, lighting and support for Community Patrols, Neighbourhood Support. Citizens Advice and other local providers.

  • Advocate for new technology measures to boost safety and tools to provide greater responsiveness and reporting.

  • Demand Police strictly adhere to their "Prevention First" policy in order to prevent crime and disorder, and ensure greater emphasis on high-profile patrolling to reduce death and serious injury on our roads.

  • Ensure Auckland Council administers its statutory responsibilities under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, Dog Control Act 1996, and Noise Control Act 1982 in a reasonable and fair manner that satisfies our communities.
