Survey shows trust in police
Most people trust police and feel safe in their community according to this year’s police Citizens’ Satisfaction Survey.
Close to 10,000 people took part in the national survey which revealed 75 per cent of people living in the Auckland City Police District have quite a lot of trust, or trust, in police.
The district covers the Auckland City Harbour News area.
Nationally the figure was 79 per cent.
The survey also revealed 92 per cent of people in the district feel safe in their neighbourhood during the day, but
full after dark the number drops to 64 per cent.
Only 45 per cent of people in the area feel safe in the city or town centre after dark.
The common reasons for feeling unsafe are alcohol and drug issues in the city and town centres, poor lighting, and being elderly.
