Constable Matthew Hunt was young and had “everything to live for”.
On June 19 everything was taken from him when he was gunned down on a West Auckland street in New Zealand.
Matthew Hunt was shot multiple times and killed during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop.
He died doing what he had always wanted to do. Protecting his community from criminals and keeping them safe.
“From a very young age Matthew expressed his desire to join the police, it never wavered and he found his forever family with the police – it was a perfect fit for him,”
Like most Police Officers we find a family whose only desire is to help others and make this world a safer place for everyone.
When a Police Officer falls the ripples are felt across the world and the Police family miss a heartbeat.
I don’t think there is a better tribute that could be paid from his colleagues than the Police Hakka.
You will be missed.
