New Zealand Police won't be marching in Auckland's Pride Parade in February after being asked not to wear their uniforms.
The Board of Auckland Pride confirmed in a statement Friday afternoon their position that the New Zealand Police "will not be marching in uniform in the 2019 Auckland Pride Parade".
"This decision has been made following a series of community feedback sessions, including the 2018 AGM and Community Hui series held in venues across Auckland," the statement says.
