The Independent Police Conduct Authority intends to undertake an investigation into allegations of bullying and related
issues within Police.
The Authority has received several specific complaints of bullying. These have identified a number of more general
matters requiring investigation.
The independent review by Debbie Francis that the Police have commissioned will be focusing primarily on the systems and
processes for dealing with bullying complaints. The Authority's investigation will necessarily be wider and will
consider whether there are ongoing organisational, cultural, management or practice issues that foster bullying or allow
it to occur.
Those who wish to make a complaint or otherwise provide information relevant to this investigation may contact the
Authority by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
The identities of those who contact the Authority and the information provided will be treated in confidence and will
not be passed on to the New Zealand Police or any other person without consent.
