Motorcycle safety built in

London calling for marathon man

Senior prosecutor Sergeant Mike Morgan is used to giving criminals a run for their money. Now he’s giving the phrase new meaning as he prepares to tackle the London Marathon on behalf of Crimestoppers UK.

Our Values, Our Way

By Commissioner Mike Bush

Kia ora. Police’s Values and our Code of Conduct guide everything we do, from the decisions we make to the way we behave at all times. That’s why it’s important that all staff have a sound understanding of the standards we have set for ourselves.

Minister's Word

A view from Police Minister Michael Woodhouse

I have said a number of times already that I believe New Zealand Police is an organisation staffed by highly skilled, highly professional men and women delivering excellent results for New Zealanders. I should also acknowledge the important contribution our police dogs make.
