Under Labour, New Zealand is less safe as gang numbers explode. Gangs are becoming more powerful, while the Government focuses on making apologies for criminals rather than arresting them. You can read more here <[link removed]>.
On a weekly basis we learn of increased gang-related gun crime, shootings and escalating addiction, particularly in our provinces.
Under Labour we have seen:
- Gang membership increase by 50%, leaving New Zealanders feeling less safe, and criminals more emboldened.
- The number of serious assaults has more than doubled leaving our streets more violent.
- Failure to deliver on their promise of 1800 more Police over three years.
- Failure to deliver on their promise of 700 new Police targeting organised crime.
And on top of this we now have a Government actively working to coddle up to gangs – rather than hold them to account.
National will not stand by whilst our streets become less safe, and gangs continue to become more emboldened, peddling meth and perpetrating violence on our streets.

It’s time the Government was open and transparent with New Zealanders about their agenda when it comes to gangs and organised crime.
It’s time we Demand the Debate about gangs and organised crime in New Zealand so that we can keep New Zealanders safe.
