Armed police patrolled a citizenship ceremony at Queenstown's Memorial Centre yesterday to provide safety and assurance for 77 new citizens.

Armed police have never manned a citizenship ceremony in the district before, but the local council decided to do so on advice from the Department of Internal Affairs following the shootings at two mosques in Christchurch last month.
