Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) has found that two police officers were justified in firing shots at a wanted man in a high-speed pursuit on Auckland’s northern motorway, RNZ reveals. Acting Waitematā District Commander Mark Fergus said the officers were part of the police Special Tactics Group which receives a higher level of training than general frontline officers. Meanwhile, IPCA also found police communication problems, and that staff in the custody area did not have proper training or supervision. Fergus said they have already implemented IPCA’s recommendations and introduced a new risk alert system at the court’s custody unit.
