NZ Police Internal Change Programme: Summary

March 18, 2015 at 6:13 PM

On Monday 16th of March, Police hosted a workshop in Wellington to outline their proposed internal change programme process and to seek feedback from NGOs working in the family violence sector as to what the Police are doing well and what they could be doing better. 

The workshop consisted of three components:

  • Introduction (Superintendent Tusha Penny, National Manager: Prevention)
  • Overview of the proposed New Zealand Police Internal Family Violence Change Programme (Inspector Shane Cotter, Family Violence Programme Director)
  • Feedback and input from Non Government Organisations.

The attached document is WAVES' summary of the framework as outlined by Police. At this stage the framework is still under development so these areas may change/evolve/be added to. 


At this stage there are no plans for further consultation with NGOs to take place outside of Wellington, however Police are still happy to recieve feedback on their questions around what they are doing well in ther responses to family violence and what they could be doing better. You can contact Police to offer feedback via the email addresses in the attached document.
