Whether it's policing Hamilton's city streets or keeping diverse rural communities between the southern King Country and the tip of the Coromandel safe, Police in Waikato are committed to taking the lead in making our District a safer and more enjoyable place to live.

We maintain close links with our communities as we work towards our goals of community reassurance, policing with confidence and organisational development.

For district staffing figures please refer to the Annual Report which can be found on the Publications and Statistics page.
