Police vetting cost recovery consultation

February 20, 2013 at 9:46 AM

NZ Police ask the public for opinions on the proposal to seek cost recovery for a variety of Police activities, which are not seen as ‘primary functions’.    This consultation finishes on 5 March 2013 and covers two related matters:

  1. Seeking public comment on the general concept of cost recovery and asking what areas of police activities might be considered appropriate for cost recovery, citing examples from overseas including attending events, providing information, licensing, vehicle removal/disposal, and other such as custody for immigration, attending false alarms, traffic management for business/events.
  2. Seeking specific comment on the proposal to charge all organisations including government agencies $5-7 (GST inclusive) for a standard police check and $10-14 (GST inclusive) for an urgent check.

WAVES Trust does not support the proposal to seek cost recovery for police attendance at non-profit public and community events or for police vetting provided to NGO organisations, charities, and religious organisations. Read more
