Police Vision and Mission

Police’s Vision is to build “safer communities together”.

Police’s Mission is to serve the community by:
• reducing the incidence and effects of crime;
• detecting and apprehending offenders;
• maintaining law and order and enhancing public safety.

Police Values

Integrity: All Police members are committed and loyal to the vision, values and goals of the organisation. They inspire trust and behave honestly and ethically.

Professionalism: All Police members are aware of the impact of their behaviour at all times. They maintain self-control, are resilient and present a professional image. They uphold the rule of law and maintain the guidelines, standards, policies and procedures set by the organisation.

Respect: All Police members understand that their role is to acknowledge and respond to our diverse society and to serve all people with dignity. In doing so they recognise the rights, values and freedoms of all people.

Commitment to Māori and Treaty: We are committed to being responsive to Māori as tangata whenua, recognising the Treaty of Waitangi as New Zealand’s founding document. By working with Māori we will enhance safety and security.
