Dairy owners say $6 million to stop ram raids is too little too late.

The funding, announced by Police Minister Poto Williams, will come out of the Proceeds of Crime Fund to help vulnerable businesses bolster their protection.

It will help pay for bollards and other security measures to prevent offenders breaking into and robbing stores.

Sunny Kaushal from the Dairy Owners' Association told Mike Hosking they need at least $13 million just for fog cannons.

He says then on top of that you need the bollards, CCTV cameras, more Police and artificial intelligence.
