New Zealand Police is holding the first ever National Open Day on Saturday, June 14.

All 12 Police Districts as well as the Royal NZ Police College are inviting the public to "Come and Discover NZ Police" and gain an understanding of what a modern Police service looks like.

"Policing has changed significantly," says Commissioner Mike Bush.

“New tools and technology have enabled a major transformation of the way we do business. We'd like to show New Zealand how we are using these to prevent crime, reduce offending and keep our communities safe."

There will be a number of stations open to the public around the country as well as events held in the community.

“The public will be able to see and engage with police officers, police vehicles and some our specialist groups such as the dog section, AOS and Search and Rescue.

People can also engage with NZ Police online, learn about the range of work Police is involved in and find information about Open Day events taking place around the country via www.police.govt.nz/openday.

NZ Police will be sharing images and stories on the open day via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #nzpolice #openday.

"It is the first time New Zealand Police has opened its doors to the community on a national scale," Mr Bush said.

"We are committed to a New Zealand where we can all be safe, and feel safe. We want the community to have the chance to see how we are working to achieve that"

"This is an exciting new era for New Zealand Police. We hope people will come along and see for themselves on June 14" said Mr Bush.
