The value of valuing diversity

Police’s commitment to live up to its core value of Valuing Diversity has received a massive endorsement in New Zealand’s first Superdiversity Stocktake.

Women, peace and security

Last month at the United Nations Security Council in New York, New Zealand launched its National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. It has major significance for Police, writes Senior Sergeant Claire Bibby, who helped draft the plan.

A degree of innovation

From an animated sheriff to a heavy metal wedge, the ideas flowed when students were challenged to come up with novel solutions to car crime.

Police has teamed up with a motor accessories retailer to stop people becoming repeat victims.

Ministers see ideas in action

Police Minister Michael Woodhouse and Communications Minister Amy Adams saw ideas in action during a visit to Police’s Mobile Innovation Lab and Experience Centre, where staff develop new ways of working to support everyday policing.

Charity begins at home

It started with a song. Now Police employee Michelle Carlile-Alkhouri is heading a charity which aims to bring some creative light into the lives of Syrian refugee children.

Safety built on success

As summer approaches, police covering some of New Zealand’s most challenging roads are building on the success of a project which seeks to keep road users – including an increasing number of visitors - safe.

Alex – a community united

There was no happy ending in the search for ten-year-old Alex Fisher - but all involved in the extraordinary cross-community effort to find him should take pride in their contribution.

Ship artefacts surface at museum

Artefacts from one of New Zealand’s most famous and unusual shipwrecks are in the care of Police while their ownership is established.
