PHPF: being the best we can - by Commissioner Mike Bush

Kia ora. Our vision for Police is to have the trust and confidence of all. To achieve this, we need to be the safest country and therefore the best Police service in the world. Everyone who lives in or visits New Zealand deserves this, and it’s our job to make it happen.


How PHPF might make a difference

An intoxicated woman who is denied entry to a bar scuffles with bouncers, ending with an iPhone 6 belonging to one of the door staff being destroyed.

Our brilliant day – in pictures

It was, said Commissioner Mike Bush, a brilliant day for Police - and no one who was there would disagree.

Jessica Phuang, Auckland City District Asian Liaison Coordinator, says she is living her dream as she builds bridges between Police and communities.

Friends in need

Champions. But not

Played four, won four. Points for 197, points against 61. New Zealand Police’s netballers played like champions but, as invitational guests only in the 2016 Air Force Interbase Netball Tournament, came away with nothing but pride.

Don’t be a wonder cop

Three pilots under way in Counties Manukau which aim to reduce family harm owe their beginnings to frontline ideas generated during the first phase of Policing Excellence the Future.

Farewell to Richie

The Police family turned out in force to say farewell to Senior Sergeant Richie Ryan, with an estimated 500 colleagues forming a guard of honour for his funeral in Christchurch.

Respect on land and water

In three years Tuakana Teina has given hundreds of young people a new sense of respect for themselves and others – and the waters that surround our country.

ABCs of the CIB

“I have absolutely loved being in Police and the CIB,” says Detective Superintendent Andy Lovelock as he contemplates retirement. “I’ll be as enthusiastic on 12 August, my last day’s duty, as I’ve always been.”

The man in the middle

After 18 years in Police, Detective Chris ‘Charlie’ Brown is swapping blue for white and a career as an international cricket umpire.

Sweet couture

Sweet! Constable Judy Powell’s flair for fashion put her among the winners in a competition celebrating Dunedin’s link with chocolate giant Cadbury.

Minister's Word

A view from Police Minister Judith Collins

I was very pleased to see that the heroic actions of five New Zealand Police officers, along with six other brave New Zealanders, were acknowledged with New Zealand Bravery awards earlier this month.
