The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into an allegation that a Police officer from the Wellington District assaulted his teenaged child while off-duty. The incident was thoroughly investigated and, after considering all of the evidence, Police decided that no charge would be laid. The matter was then dealt with as an employment investigation.

The Authority's final review of the Police investigation agreed with the finding and the outcome.
