New Zealand Gestapo Tactics Way Outdated: Expert

Posted by te2ataria on September 25, 2010

New Zealand police’s policy which allows high-speed chases for minor traffic offenses is 20 years out of date: International Expert

At least 16 people have been killed since January following after high-sped chases by police. All of the fatal police pursuits this year occurred as a result of minor traffic infringements.

[NOTE: The actual fatality figures may be as high as 45 victims.]

A police review of pursuit policy this year – the fourth in six years – ignored key recommendations of the Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) and made only minor changes.

The rate of fatal pursuits has since risen. Eight people have died in four pursuits since June, when Police Commissioner Howard Broad announced that an internal review of police pursuits had found the policy needed only minor tweaking.

The latest reported casualties were  Deidre Jordan, 67, and Norm Fitt, 73, who were killed when their car was struck by another vehicle driven by Phillip Bannan, 22. He was fleeing police, afetr a pursuit for  speeding.

Geoff Alpert, a South Carolina University criminology professor and who is a consultant for police in North America, and who has specialized in police pursuit policy for 25 years, says:

“Any kind of a pursuit plan includes policy, training, supervision and accountability. You have to hold the police officers accountable for their decisions and you have to hold the police chiefs accountable for their decisions.”

Placing all the blame on the driver who flees is not best practice, Alpert said.  Read report.

Welcome to New Zealand police farce! You’re just the individual we’re looking for. We’ll grant you a whitewash and graduation with honors

“The man denied the offending, but an internal investigation into the incident, completed after he had graduated from the police college and had been placed in South Auckland, found him guilty of common assault a charge punishable by up to six months in prison or a $4000 fine.

“It is understood no criminal charges were laid.

“The information comes to light as another former recruit remains stood down on full pay awaiting trial, accused of raping a woman he met on the internet, two weeks into his police training.

“Police were unable [!] to say how many recruits had been investigated for disgraceful conduct in the past few years, but The Dominion Post knows of three other investigations in 2006 alone, including one accused of a domestic-related burglary and another man convicted of assaulting another recruit with a bottle while socialising in the police bar.”

“Police Minister Judith Collins declined to comment.” Read more…
