People in Policing: A Five Year HR Strategy to 2006

Date Published: 
October 2001

This is the first People in Policing: Five Year HR Strategy. It signals a longer term focus on the important matters facing everyone in NZ Police. The strategy was developed in consultation with a number of staff and other stakeholders and is based on their opinions as well as analysis of staffing patterns and ongoing issues.

This strategy sets specific goals for us to achieve by 2005, including ensuring our staff are capable, skilled, trained and safe in their delivery of the current and future range of Police services. It also sets out strategies to continue improving our leadership and management capability.

The strategy also signals significant changes to the HR processes, systems and information management. This will see us move to simpler, timelier and more flexible management of people in Police. In developing and implementing these changes we must strive to balance the rights, aspirations and dignity of staff with the needs of NZ Police.
