About the Role

New Zealand Police delivers services that ensure communities are safe and feel secure, with less crime, road trauma, and fewer victims.  New Zealand 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.
