Minister’s Word

A view from Police Minister Anne Tolley

We have a justice sector that is delivering great results for New Zealand communities.
Crime has fallen in each of the past three years and is down by a total of 16.7 per cent. At the same time, reoffending is down by 10.6 per cent so there are now thousands fewer victims of crime in our country.
