Police have met Maori leaders from Wellington at Waiwhetu marae to discuss ways to lower Maori crime rates.
Superintendent Wally Haumaha says Te Atiawa kaumatua Kara Puketapu invited police to the marae on Wednesday, in response to comments on high Maori youth crime and family violence rates by Commissioner Howard Broad at a forum earlier this month.
He told Waatea News the Whanau Maori Standing Up hui was the first of a series.
It was broken into workshops which discussed problems facing Maori according to age groups.
The workshops looked at the circumstances that draw Maori into risky and criminal behaviour.
A final workshop will look at problems for the 17-plus age group such as drink driving, alcohol and family violence.
