New Zealand Police Strategic Plan to 2010

Date Published:

The New Zealand Police Strategic Plan to 2010 has three strategic goals which Police will focus on: community reassurance, policing with confidence and organisational development. The strategy also outlines many challenges Police have to face, and a range of opportunities that can be acted on to improve the service to New Zealand.

This is a period of growth, and a period for fundamental rethinking about how to police in New Zealand’s society. Throughout the term of this plan Police will recruit and deploy 1,250 additional staff and effectively manage the risks of growth. Staff will consult widely over a new Police Act and deliver to the Government the material upon which final decisions on the shape of policing for the 21st century can be made.
 
Commissioner Broad also wants to focus on our field staff as a properly trained, equipped and focused member of Police, acting intelligently and ethically, can contribute significantly to safer communities. This plan supports Police staff and aims to make their work simpler, more satisfying and more effective. Commissioner Broad wants to see members of the Police confidently fulfilling our mission to reduce crime, road trauma and victimisation - to stand up and be counted.
