The Turning of the Tide Strategy 2012/13 - 2017/18

Date Published:

'The Turning of the Tide - a Whanau Ora Crime and Crash Prevention Strategy' was developed by the Police Commissioner's Maori Focus Forum, consisting of senior Iwi representatives from around the country, with help from Police. It's based on Iwi Crime and Crash Plans drawn up by Te Arawa, Ngapuhi, Ngati Whatua and Tainui and has been strongly endorsed by iwi leaders around the country.

Targets to be reached by 2018 include a 10% decrease in the proportion of first-time youth and adult offenders who are Maori; a 20% decrease in the proportion of repeat youth and adult victims and offenders who are Maori; a 25% decrease in Police (non-traffic) apprehensions of Maori that are resolved by prosecution; and a 20% reduction in the proportion of casualties in fatal and serious crashes who are Maori (without increasing the proportion of Maori injured in serious crashes).
