How we’re tracking
Bringing our data together
Police is committed to being accessible and available. This includes being transparent and providing as much information as possible, in the most accessible way possible.
How we’re tracking brings together some user-friendly graphics that provide an overview of key Police data from the 2019/20 year.
A more detailed breakdown of our performance is available in Police’s Annual Report, with monthly updates available on policedata.nz.
We have set ourselves targets in the five areas that are causing the greatest ongoing harm. Targeting these areas will have the biggest impact towards reducing harm and making New Zealand the safest country:
5% reduction in road deaths each and every year
Working alongside our road safety partners at all levels, we will maintain our focus on the behaviours we know cause the most harm to people on our roads.

We have approximately 14,000 personnel
During the 2019/20 year the total Police Full Time Equivalent (FTE) numbers (including constabulary and other Police employees) increased by 910 (6.9%).
We have applied our Prevention First approach to our people's health, safety and wellbeing
Our health and safety strategy Safer People: Our Wellness and Safety 2020 - 2023, focuses on preventing harm to our people through a holistic approach to wellbeing.
