Annual Report 2010
The 2009/10 year marked twenty-one years of civilian police oversight in New Zealand by the Independent Police Conduct Authority and its predecessor the Police Complaints Authority. As with any 21st anniversary, it represented an age of transition for the Authority, its staff and functions.
During the financial year, the Authority:
- issued the greatest number of public reports in its history;
- implemented the final recommendation made in respect of its operations by the 2007 Commission of Inquiry into Police Conduct;
- expanded its important work in the field of human rights;
- improved public accessibility through adoption of the Language Line translation service;
- implemented a system of full electronic filing and management of most complaints; and
- reduced the backlog of complaints that are more than 12 months old, from a high of 1611 files in 2007, to 16 such files in 2010.
