A police officer has allegedly breached Auckland's Covid-19 border to go with a group to a funeral.
Police say it is carrying out an internal investigation after the officer was allowed through a checkpoint without an exemption.
The officer had allegedly accompanied a group of people across the boundary to attend a funeral a short distance away, a police spokesperson said.
"Police have confirmed the travel was not permitted by health, but further inquiries into the matter are required to more fully understand the context, including decision-making around the case."
The police watchdog, the Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) has been notified.
