Watch: Cops keep an eye out at junior rugby match

Police have taken to the sidelines of junior rugby for the first time in Auckland today in a bid to tackle negative sideline behaviour. "Operation Footy Cops" was revealed by the Herald last month - an initiative to see a community policing team present at weekend matches. An email from community constable John To'ua-Kalava to a neighbourhood watch group said he was working on the initiative having personally witnessed negative sideline behaviour supporting family sport while off-duty.
