Operational policing

$36 million worth of assets under investigation

Gangs and organised criminals are being targeted by staff around the country using new civil forfeiture legislation.

‘Can do’ attitude key to Canterbury's success

Canterbury District Commander, Superintendent Dave Cliff has much to be proud of. At the time of his interview with Ten-One earlier this month, not one person had died on the district’s roads in 2010.

Operation Beryl wins award

EARLY IN 2009, the Auckland City Intelligence Unit discovered an unusually high number of Toyata Hiace vans were being stolen across the Auckland City District and comparatively few being recovered.


Planning key to Raggamuffin success

Despite a flurry of late ticket sales, which saw more than 30,000 people attend Rotorua’s Raggamuffin concert, careful planning helped ensure the Police operation ran smoothly.

Roster to meet demand

Canterbury District is currently trialling a number of measures designed to ensure more staff are available at times of high demand for service.

Safe practices save millions

The latest ACC audit of Police has recognised a significant advance in health and safety practice. Police’s safety status has been raised from primary to secondary and as a consequence the levies charged by ACC have fallen by $3.6 million.


Antisocial road users feel the heat

Antisocial road users (boy racers) in Canterbury are feeling the full force of the law and their community.

Every officer encouraged to act

A whole of district approach has resulted in consistently high levels of road safety enforcement and a low fatality rate in Canterbury

Community policing

Marae courts set to grow

New Zealand’s third marae-based youth court opened this month in Waitakere.

Graffiti-free scheme aims to develop pride

The unveiling of urban art mural boards designed and painted by a group of ‘at risk’ students from Manurewa High School helped launch graffiti prevention scheme Tag Free Kiwi earlier this month.

Community turns itself around

The suburb of Victory in Nelson recently received the Community of the Year Award in recognition of its efforts to turn itself around. In the past Victory has had its share of hard times and trouble, but it is now a vibrant multi-ethnic community.

Building bridges with the Asian community in Christchurch

Asian Community Relations Officer Constable Li’Ying Cai uses her previous work experience both in China and New Zealand as well as her bilingual skills and knowledge of her native China to improve understanding between the Asian Community in Canterbury and Police.

Iwi-led crime prevention plan launched

IWI LEADERS from Ngāti Whātua and Tainui are working closely with Auckland Metro police commanders and key stakeholders in an effort to reduce Māori offending and victimisation across the three Auckland Districts.

Youth services

Interagency groups committed to achieve results with youth

Education, support and youth accountability are key to the Canterbury Police Youth Education Services’ (YES) approach to youth issues in the district.

Persistence key to combating truancy

Senior Sergeant John Robinson relates how persistence paid off with one young truant.

Policing overseas

Disco fever hits Honiara

Blue Light has launched an annual programme of monthly discos on the first Saturday of each month in Honiara, Solomon Islands.

Volunteers help children reach school safely

In Kolovai, Tonga, traffic police have been training community volunteers to help children cross the road to school.
