NZ Police recruit training programme to be trialled in Auckland
For the first time ever New Zealand Police recruits will be trained in Auckland. Training usually takes place at the Royal New Zealand Police College in Wellington. The Auckland recruits will learn at Unitec and be able to return home at the end of each day.
Police say they've taken on board feedback from people who've said moving to Wellington for the sixteen week training period was a barrier to joining the force.
Training in Auckland begins on Monday.
