Skies clear for Police under The Cloud

Skies clear for Police under The Cloud

The clear skies over Auckland City are predicted to last well into the weekend so the only cloud you should be under is The Cloud on Queen's Wharf tomorrow between midday and 3pm.

That's where you'll find a fleet of fine looking Police vehicles and finely tuned Auckland City District officers, staff and volunteers, all eager to show you how we take care of business in the city and beyond.

Check out the Dog display, Search and Rescue equipment and processes, Police chopper Eagle, Maritime Unit's launch Deodar 3 and her little sister RHIB as well as the Armed Offenders Squad kit and caboodle.

Test your detective skills alongside the forensic team, watch The Edge's Dom Harvey, Mike Puru, Chang Hung, Guy Williams and Jono Kenyon take on some of our best on the physical competency test and see how you cope with cones while sober but wearing booze goggles.

It's all free and won't happen again like this in a hurry so take a break downtown and soak up the atmosphere between midday and 3pm tomorrow.

ENDS
