“We know that across the country people still want to engage face-to-face with local police in their community, and we will always do this. But technology is transforming the way the public wants and expect to interact with organizations and their services – and Police is no different.
We’ve achieved a lot this past year with the 105 non-emergency number, online reporting, and NZ Police app making it easier for the public to access and receive the services and information they want, when they want, and in the ways that suit them.
But we’re very much just starting this journey, as Police Connect, Ella and other modern digital technologies present many more exciting opportunities for us to provide new and improved policing services.”
Mike Bush, Commissioner, New Zealand Police
