Annual Report 2019
Our Annual Report shows our progress against our targets and performance for the year ended 30 June 2019.
Highlights in the year 2018/19 included:
- As part of the Government’s ongoing investment in policing, we have trained 1,486 officers which, after attrition, equates to around 650 additional officers into our communities, over and above our current staffing levels and attrition replacement requirements.
- As at 30 June 2019, serious crime victimisations had reduced by 10,581 victimisations. Since this target began in July 2017, we have introduced a number of prevention initiatives and we have targeted specific crime types.
- 91% of victims agreed they were treated fairly (standard 90%)
- 100% of online reporting cases were responded to within 24 hours (service level timeframe)
- There were 334 instances where children were saved from harm following an organised crime investigation
- The cost benefit ratio per referral to a Te Pae Oranga Panel was $1.00 : $7.60 ($1.00 spent : estimated cost avoided). This measure contributes to our Police target of a 25% reduction in Māori reoffending by 2025.
- The number of fatal and serious injury crashes per 10,000 population in 2018/19 was fewer than the previous year.
- You can also read about our response to the Christchurch Mosque attacks that occurred on 15 March 2019. Our response to this event is the largest operation undertaken in Police’s history.
