The Police Association fears that managing Auckland’s regional boundary ahead of Christmas will be “a disaster” for the already over-stretched officers stationed at the checkpoints, Newshub reveals. The future of the border has been a hot topic in recent weeks, with many Aucklanders – now enduring their eleventh week of lockdown – desperate to leave the region this summer. Police Association President Chris Cahill said the prospect of vetting thousands of desperate Aucklanders clamouring to cross the boundary would be “a disaster” for police officers, many of whom are already over-stretched after months of monitoring the border.
