Joining police means you’ll never stop growing and improving. You’ll learn about yourself, your abilities and strengths and how they can be put to best use. You’ll also learn how you and your fellow police officers can make a positive difference to the lives of people around you. New Zealanders should be able to live confidently without fear of crime. Together with communities, police help keep New Zealanders safe in their homes, on the streets and on the roads. Our job is to enforce the law with courage and compassion. We also work with potential victims, whanau, community organisations, Iwi, businesses and other Government agencies to prevent harm from occurring in the first place.
