Commissioner Mike Bush says “The benefits of collaboration on law enforcement issues that affect the Pacific cannot be overstated”.

“This annual P.I.C.P. conference provides a valuable opportunity to assess ongoing actions within our work programmes and advance our thinking around Prevention”.

Cyber crime, illicit drugs, organised crime and family violence are common crime themes that will be addressed this week by the Pacific police leaders. A focus will also be placed on the development of more women into the various Police organisations.

“We will see strong leadership this week with the agreement of a new P.I.C.P. strategic plan. This plan has a strong preventative theme and innovative strategies that would be developed across the police organisations in the next five years.

“It’s very important that New Zealand Police in partnership with other jurisdictions continue to assist and develop Police organisations in Pacific Island countries. This will help to ensure law and order remains stable in all communities and

countries, and the Pacific remains safe and secure,” said Mr Bush

Conference delegates were welcomed this afternoon.

New Zealand Ambassador for the Pacific Economic Development, Shane Jones will officially open the conference.
