These are exciting times as we prepare for the Government’s $388 million Safer Communities investment in Police.
The investment will see extra staff deployed in every district, and presents an opportunity to update Our Business (our ‘policing on a page’ guide) and refresh our areas of focus.
Our Purpose, Our Vision and Our Mission - ‘to be the safest country’ - stay the same.
We know why we’re here and what we need to do to make New Zealand the safest country.
But we have given Our Business a tune-up to reflect the way we work in a changing policing environment.
The most significant change is unifying our transformation activities into a single programme.
This comprises the key elements of Policing Excellence the Future as well as the new expectations placed upon us by the Safer Communities package.
The new Our Business also acknowledges the importance of looking after our people, with Wellness and Safety included among our strategies.
