NZ police respond to IPCA findings into incident in Murupara

Police acknowledge the findings of the Independent Police Conduct Authority in relation to an officer’s response to a Police car being stolen in Murupara in October 2017.

The areas for improvement highlighted by the IPCA have been addressed with the officers involved which have included an employment investigation.

Murupara is like a lot of other rural communities where staff work by themselves a lot of the time. The work can be quite challenging at times and due to the remote locations in a critical incident immediate assistance is not always available.
