ENFORCEMENT: Police apprehend IPANZ excellence award

Posted 7/7/2016

07 JULY: The New Zealand Police was a winner at the IPANZ Public Sector 2016 Excellence Awards on 06 July. The force was winner of the ‘building trust and confidence in government’ category as a result of its ongoing cultural change initiative.

“Earning public trust and confidence goes to the heart of New Zealand Police and the work it does to keep our communities safe,” said Police Minister Judith Collins. “Police work hard every day to build and maintain public trust and confidence and this is evident with trust and confidence increasing from 69 percent in 2007/8 to 78 percent in 2014/15.

“Continued efforts to improve diversity and inclusion have also been a success, helping to strengthen a workforce that more visibly reflects the diverse communities it serves,” she continued. “This award recognises the benefits of this modern approach to policing and the importance of Police working closely and openly with government and other agencies to best serve New Zealanders.”
