A former community constable says the youth committing ram raids lack respect for their family units.

More than $562 million has been promised over four years for more frontline police, a new firearms unit and a package for businesses to protect themselves. 

Manukau Ward councillor Alf Filipaina told Kate Hawkesby it's a good start, and he's looking forward to seeing its implementation.

“We’ve seen the disrespect for not only the family unit at a very young age and also to Police and authority; we’ve seen that happen over many years.”
