Excellence acknowledged

The Institute of Public Administration New Zealand (IPANZ) recognised the excellence of police work nationwide by selecting three separate projects as finalists at an award ceremony held in Wellington last month.

IPANZ is a voluntary non-profit organisation, committed to promoting informed debate on public sector issues. Its strategic goals include promoting professional standards for public service. Finalists were selected under five separate categories.

The Safer Porirua initiative resulted in the World Health Organisation accrediting Porirua as an ‘International Safe Community’; and the Family Violence Interagency Response System, which enables local agencies to more effectively manage family violence cases and improve victim safety, were selected under the ‘Working Together for Better Services category’.

The project to develop and implement the Policing Act 2008 was selected as a finalist in the Managerial Leadership category.

The winners of all categories will be announced on 18 June. The prestigious Prime Minister’s award for public sector excellence will be given to the individual category winner judged to be the project or organisation that demonstrates outstanding achievement and a sustained commitment to excellence.

Deputy Commissioner Lyn Provost congratulated staff who successfully reached the finals, and those who
did not.

“I was very proud to see our leadership, across such a wide range of activities, being acknowledged at such a senior level within the Public Sector and Government,” says Lyn.
