Commissioner "disappointed"

Commissioner "disappointed" with elements of decision-making

Police Commissioner Howard Broad says he is disappointed with elements of decision-making as reported concerning the recent appointment of a senior manager at the Royal New Zealand Police College.

"The authority for making appointments at Police is delegated to managers.

"Where there are issues around an appointment - real or perceived - then these must be carefully considered.

"It is not clear whether that happened in this case.

"My expectation is that normal risk management rules apply to all appointment processes.

"I am now seeking more information about the decision-making in this case.

"The sensitivity of issues around the Commission of Inquiry is well known within Police. It is my expectation that decisions are made in accordance with learnings from the Commission of Inquiry," says Commissioner Broad.
