What do you think of the police's handling of the Napier siege?

261 comments

The two-day siege by Napier gunman Jan Molenaar, who shot dead police officer Len Snee and wounded three other people, cost more than $250,000.

However, eastern district area commander Superintendent Sam Hoyle said money was not the biggest concern when a police officer was down and the public was in danger.

Figures issued by police to The Dominion Post under the Official Information Act show the siege cost $254,283, not counting the salaries of up to 100 officers involved.
