Published on Nov 15, 2010

According to fi gures published by The Press, the classical music was introduced to the City Mall in the South Island city in last year. Since then the number of anti-social incidents recorded by security guards in the area fell from 77 a week to just two. Police agreed the music had transformed the area and created a calmer environment.
