New Zealand Police
New Zealand Police is working with the community to make New Zealanders safe. With nearly 12,000 staff, they provide policing services 24 hours a day, every day. They manage over 770,000 emergency calls a year and are always actively preventing crime and crashes and social harm.
Commitment to youth
The vision of the New Zealand Police is “to have the trust and confidence of all” especially youth.
The Kapiti Mana area Police are involved in a number of initiatives involving youth, including the Combined Adolescent Challenge Training Unit Support (CACTUS) programme through Porirua College and the Community Driver Mentor programme, where Police staff engage with Porirua youth on a daily basis, teaching them sound driving practices to prepare them for sitting and passing their restricted licences.
The Kapiti Mana area Police hosted a stand at JOBfest 2016, where a mixture of Police staff engaged with lots of youth, encouraging them to sign up for the Police recruiting process.
