Media Statement: 27 February 2014

Historic Police Pay Parade set for Manurewa

Manurewa Civic Leaders are delighted that a Historic Police Pay Parade will be taking place in Manurewa on Friday the 7th of March, and will be the last official engagement of the current Police commissioner in the Counties Manukau District.

Angela Dalton, the Manurewa Local Board Chairperson says this is an opportunity for the people of Manurewa to have pride in the work that the police do for our community. Over 200 police staff will be present for the parade and it will conclude with a formal medal ceremony outside the Methodist Church on Alfriston Road.

“The Manurewa Local Board is delighted to have this parade happening in Manurewa, and hopes to see many of the school children of our communities coming together to witness this event.” Says Ms Dalton.

“Manurewa is served well by the New Zealand Policing teams and this is a way for our community to show its appreciation for the work that our Police do.

Calum Penrose, Manurewa-Papakura Ward Councillor says most years the parade has either been held in Manukau or in Papakura, and he is pleased that this year the parade will be held in Manurewa, allowing for many of the school children to attend.

“This event will be attended by a number of dignitaries including current Police Commissioner Peter Marshall. This will be Mr Marshall’s last official event in the Counties Manukau policing district before his retirement, when he will be replaced by Mike Bush, Deputy Police Commissioner and previous District Commander of Counties Manukau.” Says Mr Penrose.

“This is an exciting time for the New Zealand Police, and this is a great opportunity for our community to support them through this time of transition.”
