Respect – the way forward

Commissioner Mike Bush says he was humbled by the respect and dignity shown to Police during his visit to Tuhoe last month.

Youth work exceeds targets

Work to keep young people out of the court system is paying dividends as Youth Services staff nationally continue to make impressive progress.

Policing Excellence celebrated

Police Commissioner Mike Bush presented Police Minister Anne Tolley with a framed miniature Maori cloak during a ceremony at PNHQ to mark the completion of the implementation of Policing Excellence.

In at the deep end

In 33 years with Police, Detective Superintendent Pete Devoy got used to being dropped in at the deep end.

Fighting the global fight

The manager of Police’s National Cyber Crime Centre (NC3) has gone overseas to join an international team fighting the global fight.

Cyprus: keeping the peace

When veterans gather next month to mark the 50th anniversary of Police’s first Cyprus deployment, the stories will flow like Kokinelli wine.

The Cambridge connection

A gathering of criminology experts in England last month was also a gathering of UK-based New Zealand Police staff.

Slices of policing life – in pictures

Earlier this year New Zealand Police staff submitted pictures for a trans-Tasman photographic competition run by the Australian Policing Journal – and Ten One asked to see copies of those entries.

The calm blue line

It was a scene of calm and tranquillity such as you might not expect with nearly 120 police officers in one room.

In the eye of the storm

Police were on the front line as a devastating storm lashed Northland last month.

The 35-hour mercy dash

Sergeant Craig Arvidson is no stranger to medical emergencies back in Counties Manukau – but a man’s infected foot in Craig’s current deployment to Pitcairn Island required a major lifesaving effort.

Passing on TAG wisdom

Old hands on Western Bay of Plenty’s Traffic Alcohol Group (TAG) are passing their wisdom to the newbies through formal mentoring as they perform compulsory impairment tests (CITs) on suspected drug-drivers.

Questions answered at mosque

Frontline staff working alongside Muslim communities have had some pressing questions answered in workshops at a local mosque.

Something borrowed, something blue

Inquest Sergeant Murray Stapp is used to being asked questions in the course of his working day, but one last month came completely out of the blue.

Celebration and reflection

By Commissioner Mike Bush

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Armed Offenders Squad. This is a significant milestone in our history.

Minister’s Word

A view from Police Minister Anne Tolley

With the completion of Policing Excellence, I want to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate every single staff member who has contributed to the fantastic results it has achieved – to not only meet but exceed targets.
