Crimes (Substituted Section 59) Amendment Act 2007 - 7th Review
This report details results from the 7th review of relevant Police activity since enactment of the Crimes (Substituted Section 59) Amendment Act 2007. This review covers the period 23 December 2009 to 22 June 2010.
Monitoring initially took place for a two year period since enactment on 22nd June, 2007.
In December 2009, the Prime Minister invited Police to continue monitoring for a further three years. This followed the review into the policies and procedures used by the New Zealand Police and Child, Youth and Family. Police was also invited to include data on cases in which a parent or caregiver said the force used on the child was reasonable in the circumstances.
