following the resolution of an incident at the property.

Cordons in the area have been reduced and residents are able to safely return
to their properties.

Cordons will remain around the Bledisloe Street property and a scene guard
will be in place overnight.

Bledisloe Street residents can expect to see a continued police presence in
the street in the coming days, but we want to reassure residents that there
is no need for concern.

Police would like to once again thank all those impacted by this incident for
their support as we worked to achieve a peaceful resolution.
