A Practical Reference to Religious Diversity
This resource provides New Zealand Police members with information about major religions in New Zealand. It covers topics such as religious background, death and related issues, gender role and family, physical contact and other sensitivities, alongside religious practices and policing.
The content of this booklet is based on a similar initiative of the former Australasian Police Multicultural Advisory Bureau.
This edition has been further informed by the fantastic feedback received from individuals and groups keen to help Police make the first issue even better. My sincere thanks to those who took the time and made the effort to contribute their thoughts.
