NZ Police: Auckland daily compliance update

From NZ Police 

Family harm message 

As we continue to be subject to Alert Level restrictions, Police are urging anyone experiencing abuse or violence to seek support.

Preliminary data shows the number of reported family harm incidents decreased by 2.3 percent in week three (27 August – 2 September) of Alert Level restrictions and 1.5 percent in week four (3 September – 9 September).
We know family harm incidents are typically underreported to Police and, in the current situation, it may be more difficult for some to reach out to us.

Alert level restrictions can put additional pressure on families and increase the risk of violence from a partner or family member.

That’s why we want anyone experiencing harm at home to know that Police are here to help, no matter the alert level.

If you feel scared, threatened or unsafe please call us on 111. If you cannot call, leave your bubble and ask a neighbour or passer-by to call for you.

We also urge anyone with concerns about a loved one or friend to call us on their behalf – you could be saving their life.
