The Police aren't getting any extra funding however that doesn't stop inflation and costs going up, their having to look at ways of cutting costs which include centralising staff, use of call centres called Crime Reporting Lines instead of going into your local police station.
There also looking at closing small Police Stations with Whangamata & Whitianga to name two i know of.
Also there is no plans for more front line staff and instead the focus will be on doing more with less.
Statistics are one of those things that can be twisted to suit ones needs by recoding an incident to something else... ie... vehicle crash = traffic incident, burglary = theft

With cutbacks in Police numbers,cutbacks in Local Government funding,both alcohol and drug addiction,the closure of treatment centres for drug and alcohol addiction outside of prisons, and reduced health spending none of the governments proposal are remotely feasible.
More meaningless grandstanding by the Minister and Prime Minister.
