A strong contingent of off-duty Police staff will participate in the annual Pride Parade on Saturday 25 February in celebration of the diverse communities we are part of.

“Diversity is a core value of New Zealand Police and the parade provides an ideal opportunity for Police employees to support the communities they serve and march, regardless of their gender identity or orientation,” said Assistant Commissioner Allan Boreham.

It is important for New Zealand Police to reflect the communities they serve and as an organisation Police look to encourage staff to ‘use who they are’ not ‘lose who they are’ when becoming a police officer.

“Diversity is something we strive for as it’s important that we are able to reflect all the communities we serve and appreciate different thinking, which means we can find better solutions and achieve better results together,” said Assistant Commissioner Boreham.

Off-duty staff participating in the parade will be in uniform and they will be supported by friends and family marching with them.

There will also be on-duty staff in uniform who will be working.

Across the country New Zealand Police have Diversity Liaison Officers who are specific GLBTI friendly staff.

They provide a safe point of contact and an assurance that issues and concerns from the GLBTI community will be taken seriously.

In addition to Diversity Liaison Officers, Police also have Iwi Liaison Officers, Ethnic Liaison Officers and a Police Chaplaincy Services giving the diverse communities that make up New Zealand a strong direct link to Police.

To ensure Police remains responsive to the needs of all New Zealanders and truly reflective of the society and communities they serve we encourage and welcome people, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or sexuality, to apply to join Police.

Auckland Police and Neighbourhood Support are working in partnership to promote the crime prevention programme. Called ‘Safer Plates’, the purpose of the operation is to make it harder for offenders to target your vehicle to steal your registration plates.


Stolen number plates are currently being used for evading detection when committing offences such as petrol drive-offs, robberies and thefts. They are also used to evade identification in more serious crimes.

‘Safer plates’ is a unique, anti-theft, plate-fixing system that is easily fitted to a vehicle without the need for special tools or equipment. This system is designed to replace existing number plate screws with inexpensive but effective tamper resistant number plate fixing screws. It takes only a couple of minutes to have them fitted!

If you would like the tamper proof screws on your number plates, get yourself and your car down to the Countdown Quay Street carpark on Thursday, 11 June 2015. No booking necessary.

Hi all

We're pleased to report that dishonesty crime in Parnell was down last month! This is a fantastic result and we're convinced that you all played a big part in this; by being vigilant around the security of your homes and cars; by removing temptation for potential thieves and burglars; and by reporting suspicious activity in your area.

We still think the number of car break-ins could come down significantly more and, again, we're relying on you to take all valuables with you when leaving your car. Even down to the smallest things - sunglasses, loose change, phone cables, clothing and gym bags. Also, we have had a couple of break-ins where people had attempted to hide an iPad and a laptop under an item of clothing or blanket - this is not enough to fool thieves; please take them with you! If you really can't take your property with you, then secure the items out of sight in the boot of your car.

Don't have an alarm or immobiliser fitted in your car? Your car is at risk of being stolen. Popular with our car thieves for being easy to steal… anything Mazda, but particularly the Demio and Familia, Subaru Impreza or Legacy, Nissans and Hondas, among others! It takes them only a minute or two to break in and hotwire these vehicles. You can help deter thieves by installing an alarm or immobiliser, using a steering wheel lock and parking off-street where at all possible. A steering wheel lock might only cost you $30 new! If you have to park on the street, park under a street light or in a high traffic area where your vehicle and any potential thief can easily be seen by others. In a carpark, park your vehicle near the attendant (if one is on) or near a security camera - and remember to take your valuables with you!

Anyway, enough of the novel (for today)... a big thank you for last month's effort. Let's see how we go in May!
