Operational policing

New guard steps up

Staff safety and performance were quickly established as focus areas for Police’s new senior leadership team as it settled into Police National Headquarters this month.

Recorded offences drop

A drop in recorded offences shows Police strategy is working at national and districts levels, says Kevin Kelly, Acting General Manager Development.

Strategy keeps focus on meth

A targeted enforcement campaign against methamphetamine offenders is paying off, with 2010 statistics showing an 8.2 percent drop in the possession and use of methamphetamine and amphetamines.

Awards recognise inspiring heroics

Thirteen police officers are recipients of New Zealand Bravery Awards, the country’s highest awards for bravery.

Take your eye off the ball

More than 5000 car owners are on the road again, after a five-week operation to retrieve cars from the Christchurch CDB.

An inquiry into the disappearance of Chinese student Jiayi Li last year developed into a fast-moving homicide investigation. Speed, timing and media relationships turned out to be critical factors.

Community policing

Police work in the Pacific is bringing an “exciting change” in attitudes, say researchers from Wellington’s Victoria University.

Good neighbours help cut stats

Burglary from dwellings in New Plymouth dropped 18 percent in the past two calendar years. One strategy that seems to be paying off is a strong partnership between Police and Neighbourhood Support.
