CBD foot patrols

James made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

The request was successful.

From: James

Dear New Zealand Police,

I reference the Newshub article dated May 27th 2023 stating an increase of foot patrols in Auckland's CBD of 220%.

"Inspector Grae Anderson is responsible for central city policing. As a response to crime concerns in the CBD, police set up a base right in the middle of the city
Anderson said there had been more than 11,000 foot patrols in the CBD this year – a 220% increase on this time last year"

Under the OIA may I please request the number of foot patrols month by month in Auckland's CBD from Jan 2020 until April 30th 2023.

If this is not available, please provide all the data used to calculate the 220% increase.

Can you please also provide the Police definition of a foot patrol - is there a standard length of time? area covered? etc.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
