Ex-Warriors player among 10 new Auckland City constables

Auckland City policing district will gain ten new constables, including a former Warriors player, following today’s graduation of Wing 213 from the Porirua Police College.

Police Minister George Hawkins said Auckland Central station will receive seven of the new constables, Avondale two and Newmarket one.

Former Auckland Warrior Kuripitone (Tony) Tatupu will be among those posted to Auckland City. Constable Tatupu played with the Warriors between 1995-96 and again between 1998-99. He is among the 20 most capped Warriors, having played 67 match games. He has also played for Samoa.

Fifty-one constables, including 15 women and 36 men aged between 20 and 46, graduated today.

Wing members shared some of their time at the College with former police especially recruited from the United Kingdom to work in Auckland.

Of today’s graduates 23 members are destined for the three Auckland districts, 15 to other North Island stations and 13 to South Island stations.

The patron of Wing 213 was Sir Angus Tait.
