Responders on the level

Following feedback from staff around the country, Police is moving toward a single responder model in which the vast majority of our constabulary staff will be trained and equipped to the same level.


Frontline reality for recruit

A ‘living classroom’ deployment became frontline reality for Recruit Emmy Garnons-Williams when she helped save the life of a man suffering a cardiac arrest in Courtenay Place, Wellington.

CFIT for purpose

Police’s new recruit training is the best possible start for a policing career, says one of the first officers to experience it.

Celebrating in styles

Celebrations of the 75th anniversary of women in policing begin next month in style – in fact, in a decades-spanning range of styles.

Listen and learn

It’s listening not talking that counts when negotiating a safe end to a high-risk situation, Detective Senior Sergeant Leairne Dow tells Ten One. This series marks the 75th anniversary of women in Police by looking at the diversity of roles women hold in the organisation today.

Infringements go mobile

Police can now issue infringement notices and traffic warnings on their mobility devices with OnDuty, with the paperwork posted to recipients rather than handed over at the roadside.

It’s been a blast

Assistant Commissioner Malcolm Burgess MNZM retires this month after a career that never failed to surprise him.

A global view of road policing

From Geneva to New York to Ho Chi Minh City, Assistant Commissioner Dave Cliff is getting a worldwide view of road policing.

Gazza, our boy

It was meant to be a standard search warrant for a bail absconder, with Constable Josh Robertson and his dog Gazza on hand in case the subject fled.


POPping with great ideas

A ground-breaking project which sought to change the behaviour of men who commit family violence was the Supreme Winner of the 2016 Problem-Oriented Policing (POP) Awards.

Uplifting art

A project to brighten some of our darker corners has transformed cells at Counties Manukau Hub.

Kura and police break down barriers

When a school needs help tackling bullying and the police are seen as the people who take Dad to jail, what do you do?

More precious than silver

As a silversmith, Constable Martin Carroll is used to handling valuable items. However one recent commission had a value way beyond the sum of its parts.

Activities and adventures

It all started with a few pictures to keep his oldest daughter amused – now Constable Rob Stanton’s artistic efforts are entertaining kids all over Auckland.

Continuous improvement

By Commissioner Mike Bush

Kia ora. This month’s Ten One features a report on the changes we’re making to the responder model and Police Integrated Tactical Training.

Minister's Word

A view from Police Minister Judith Collins

This month I would like to pay tribute to Gazza and the 23 other Police dogs killed in the line of duty.
