Royal visit to Police college a great honour

Royal visit to Police college a great honour

3 March 2014 - Police is honoured that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to visit The Royal New Zealand Police College (RNZPC) in Porirua as part of their New Zealand tour.

Assistant Commissioner Mike Rusbatch says The Royal New Zealand Police College is proud of its association with the Royal family:

"The Royal New Zealand Police College was opened in 1981 by Prince Charles. In 1986 Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II conferred the title "Royal' on the college during her visit for the Police Centenary celebrations.

"It is a great honour and privilege that Prince William will now visit The Royal New Zealand Police College accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge.

"Hopefully the visit to The Royal New Zealand Police College will be a highlight of their tour. When they come they will see college staff and recruits showcasing the full capabilities of the New Zealand Police and they will also lay a wreath at the Memorial Wall to honour police officers killed by criminal acts while performing their official duties," said Mr Rusbatch.

The Royal New Zealand Police College trains police recruits and delivers professional development and training to all levels of Police, as well as other agencies.

The Royal New Zealand Police College, which includes the Dog Training Centre at Trentham and is home to the New Zealand Police Museum, aims to equip staff with the skills they need to contribute to the Police vision, mission and objectives.

Centralised police training began in Wellington at the Mt Cook Police Station in December 1898. Training has continued to be based in the Wellington region except for a three year move to Lyttelton. The Trentham Military Camp was home to the college prior to its move to Porirua in 1981.
