Motherfuckin’ cops on a motherfuckin’ train

Wellington police are railing up. No, they aren’t getting into the white stuff. It’s a new initiative between the Community Constables and Tranz Metro.

“It’s along the lines of policing where the people are,” said Inspector Michael Hill.

So, sometime soon, if you are on a train to Upper Hutt, Johnsonville, Melling or Paraparaumu, you may see a friendly policeman talking to the passengers and generally keeping order among the vicious hordes of well-dressed, commuting suburban businessmen.

“We work closely with the authorities and we are delighted that Police are using the Tranz Metro train service like so many Wellingtonians,” said Mark Pettitt, Security Manager of Passenger Rail at KiwiRail.

The idea is that people will use the opportunity to discuss local issues with police.
