NZ police acknowledge IPCA findings regarding tasering of a man in Parnell

Police accept the findings of the Independent Police Conduct Authority which found that an Auckland officer’s use of a Taser on a man who was fleeing from Police was unreasonable.

On June 15, 2018, two Police staff were sent to a Parnell address to check on the welfare of two children, after their father had sought advice from Police about his domestic situation earlier that day. When Police arrived they discovered the man had a warrant for his arrest for outstanding fines of $3000. While discussing how to address this matter, the man’s partner and children arrived home.
