Police and Local Alcohol Policy: I Am The Law edition

Radio New Zealand reports today on the Police and Medical Officer of Health's shenanigans in Wellington alcohol licensing. Here's my piece from last week on it.

None of this is new. Wellington Council last year warned the Police about overstepping the mark. The cops were then also trying to impose one-way door policies by hassling publicans at licence renewals.

I'll be hitting this a bit more in this week's column at the National Business Review. It's getting to be time that the Police Minister has a word with Police about their behaviour.
