NZ police aware of funeral procession in Auckland with large gang numbers expected

As stated by Inspector Jacqui Whittaker:

Police across Tāmaki Makaurau are aware of plans for a funeral procession in Auckland tomorrow (Friday 18th June).

As well as family members, this is also expected to involve a large presence of patched gang members.

A large number of riders are expected to take part, with the procession travelling across Auckland throughout the day.

We are aware of previous incidents involving gang processions where dangerous driving behaviour has been exhibited by some of the riders, which has at times put those involved and the wider community at risk.

Police will be actively monitoring this event to ensure the procession is carried out in a safe manner for all road users.

Any unsafe or dangerous behaviour occurring throughout the procession will be followed up by Police where appropriate action will be taken.

Any concerning behaviour can be reported to Police by phoning 105.
