A winner in blue

The better work stories of seven female police officers have provided a major boost to the drive to recruit more women.


Take a bow, NZ Police…

Five Police initiatives were recognised this month at the highest level of New Zealand’s public sector – and the whole organisation takes the credit, says Commissioner Mike Bush.

Diving deep in Te Reo

Maori Language Week this month has special significance for four Police officers who are becoming fluent in Te Reo.

AOS values carved in stone

Celebrations marking the Armed Offenders Squad’s 50th anniversary will leave more than just memories: a stone wahaika, or hand club, is being carved to create a lasting symbol of the AOS mission.

Policing Excellence - change for the better

Policing Excellence has transformed the way we do business and put Police at the forefront of international policing best practice.

Maori reap the benefits

One of the great successes of Policing Excellence has been the use of pre-charge warnings – particularly in dealing with minor offending by Maori.

Intel chief’s capital career

Detective Superintendent Steve Vaughan – Jasper to his friends - has left Police after a 33-year career bookended by royalty.

Honours for quake heroes

Four serving police officers and one former officer were among 27 people to receive New Zealand Bravery Awards for their part in rescuing people after the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake.

Above all, be fair

A leading criminologist has highlighted fair treatment as the cornerstone of policing.

Veterans to mark Cyprus deployment

Planning is under way for a 50th anniversary event for former Police staff who were deployed to Cyprus – and organisers are trying to find a handful of veterans so they can be invited.

Communities defy the rain

Auckland’s worst weather of the year could not dampen the enthusiasm of members of Middle Eastern and African communities who attended a Police recruitment seminar last month.


DCC and wardens work together

Counties Manukau’s district command centre (DCC) has become the first to formalise a working relationship with local Maori Wardens.


Genoa – untangling the web

Nothing about Operation Genoa – or the offending it targeted – was simple.

Museum revamp complete

The collection is being moved back and staff and visitors are enjoying relative peace and quiet with the completion of building work at the Police Museum.

An eye for the dramatic

This dramatic scene of what appears to be an AOS arrest has won a Palmerston North detective top spot in a trans-Tasman photographic competition.

Farewell to a friend

Police in Levin have farewelled a valued friend – Ray ‘Chook’ Fowler, Police volunteer extraordinaire.

Have tuktuk, will travel

New Zealand’s most northerly police officer – Senior Constable Tracee Knowler, of sole-charge Houhora – is used to covering large distances on her beat. But even that cannot prepare her for her next challenge.

A changing world

By Commissioner Mike Bush

The criminal world is complex and technically savvy. Modern technology enables criminals to easily amass and coordinate large networks of like-minded people, and Police's district command centres and the National Command and Coordination Centre enable us to keep pace.

Minister’s Word

A view from Police Minister Anne Tolley

The first ever Police Open Day was a fantastic idea and one that certainly lived up to expectations.
