Annual Report 2010
The 2009/10 year presented an opportunity to refine the New Zealand Police business model. Economic challenges of the previous year provided a springboard for innovative thinking across the organisation. Staff at all levels contributed ideas about how Police could evolve to meet the needs and expectations of New Zealanders and the Government well into the future.
The results fed into a series of improvement projects under the banner of Policing excellence. These projects are geared towards enabling the organisation to respond to changing demands, put resources where they are most needed, focus on prevention, and respond better to victims. While this work progressed, Police achieved excellent results in priority areas, including organised crime, violence, and alcohol misuse.
The Annual Report 2010 also includes the achievements of key priority areas, the Police statement of objectives and service performance, policing statistics, as well as financial and organizational information.
