Our Vision (previously our mission) is to be the safest country in the world. Internationally, New Zealand is seen as a safe place to live, work and visit, but we continue to strive to do more. Our vision is about ensuring we continue to look ahead and think about what we can do today, and going forward, to bring about a future where everyone in New Zealand can go about their daily life without fear of harm and victimisation.
Our mission is to prevent crime and harm through exceptional policing. This is why we come to work each day – it’s the mahi we do, and do well, to make a difference.
Police operates 24-hours a day in a complex environment actively preventing crime and crashes. With around 14,000 staff, we work from community-based police stations and large policing hubs, operate on land, sea and in the air, and respond to over 860,000 emergency calls every year.
Our organisation offers numerous opportunities to engage in interesting and challenging roles on and off the frontline – from specialist policing roles to IT, from analytical roles to HR – we recruit a wide range of skills and expertise. Our people come to work to make a difference in the lives of all New Zealanders, and we pride ourselves on being a highly trusted, highly accessible police service.
Police’s values are a core part of our culture, and people who choose to work at Police must demonstrate our values every day. We are proud supporters of diversity and inclusion. We value individuality and believe that people are our greatest asset. It’s our people that set us apart and build trust and confidence in the communities we serve.
We foster a high-performing culture where our staff are supported and enabled to do their best, where they have options to work flexibly, and where their health and wellbeing are paramount.
Our jobs are challenging and rewarding – this is why many people remain with Police throughout their careers. Police employees feel a real sense of personal achievement from their work because they know they are helping to make New Zealand’s communities safer.
