Auckland Council has teamed up with NZ Police in a new initiative to enhance safety in the city centre.

The 'Together for Tamaki Makaurau' partnership is designed to establish a more visible safety presence on Auckland streets from Karangahape Road to the waterfront.

Auckland Council CityWatch and Compliance teams, police, Māori Wardens and Community Patrols NZ (CPNZ) will run co-ordinated efforts to address anti-social behaviour and crime in the CBD.

Heart of the City CEO Viv Beck says these efforts will address the social issues and deterioration that's impacted the area over the last three years.

"It's about the crime, the social issues and also some of the anti-social types of behaviour. One of the things we have said is that it doesn't replace the need for more police."
