New Zealand Police Strategic Plan to 2006

New Zealand Police Strategic Plan to 2006

Date Published:

The strategic plan signals policing development that is stable but not static - the strategy does not set out wholesale or rapid change. Changes that are necessary will occur in a measured way and with reference to current environmental conditions and the anticipated future.

Police have identified two strategic goals that align with the Police mission statement, the expectations of Government and the community. The strategic goals are community safety and crime reduction.

Some of the important connections that this strategy makes are Police's commitment to integrating Treaty of Waitangi principles and Mäori values into policing; Police's role to contribute to the targeted crimes and focus areas in the Government's Crime Reduction Strategy and national Road Safety Strategy; and Police's commitment to work in partnership with government departments, non-government organisations, groups and individuals to enhance community safety and reduce crime.
