Auckland mayoral candidate Leo Molloy is promising a ratepayer-funded downtown police station to protect Aucklanders in the fight against growing crime, NZ Herald reports. Molloy said if he becomes mayor in October, he will seek support from the 20 councillors and if they don’t support him he will pay for the police station out of the mayoral office budget. The former downtown police station in Fort St closed in 2013.
