Women in CIB
The National Crime Manager sought an independent assessment of the opportunities for and barriers to the recruitment, progress, and retention of women in the Criminal Investigation Branch. This report has been produced at the request of the New Zealand Police in response to concerns initially expressed by the Women's Consultative Committee.
The report has identified and confirmed the value of women working in the CIB, noting that both female and male officers are enthusiastic about the nature of their jobs. However there is also a degree of disillusionment on a number of fronts.
