Rotary ‘Police Person of the Year’ Award 2014

Rotary ‘Police Person of the Year’ Award 2014

The combined Rotary Clubs of Hamilton are calling for nominations for the 2014 Rotary "Police Person of the Year" Award.

The Award seeks to highlight the service provided to our community by members of the New Zealand Police and recognises those outstanding acts of courtesy, courage, kindness, understanding, compassion and devotion to duty by any member of the Hamilton NZ Police Service.

Each year's winner is chosen by a judging panel from nominations received from members of the public and numerous groups in the community. This prestigious award is presented at the annual Police Pay Parade which is to be held this year in the Hamilton Gardens, on the 5th December.

Each November nominations for the Police Person of the Year Award are called for in advertisements throughout the Hamilton area using the local press, notices posted in police stations and libraries, and in posters displayed by shopkeepers and businesses throughout the City.

The high quality and number of nominations received each year clearly demonstrates the high regard that the community holds for the members of the NZ Police and the importance that Hamiltonians place on the Rotary Police Person of the Year Award.

The award aims to recognise an outstanding member of the NZ Police, from the rank of Constable to Senior Sergeant and may include support and voluntary staff of equivalent status. Those nominated must display consistent excellence and dedication to duty in their everyday work that reflects the high ideals of the NZ Police, and which is above and beyond their normal duties without thought of recognition or reward. This is consistent with the Rotary motto of “SERVICE ABOVE SELF".

Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 28th November. (Or other such dates as agreed by the Selection Committee).

Nomination Forms are available from Public Libraries or local Police Stations,
they may also be down-loaded from here or by telephoning 021 316 1182

During the last half of the 1990s, the first flickering signs of economic growth would cause then-Reserve Bank governor Don Brash to hike up interest rates and stamp them out. The fear back then was that if left unchecked, the embers of economic activity might cause the same inflationary fires to come roaring back to life that the West had experienced in the late 1970s. At the time, Brash would justify raising interest rates on the grounds that as RB governor, he always needed to be looking 18 months ahead, and judging where things might go by then, if he didn’t act now...
