9 February 2021

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into an incident in Auckland City where a Police patrol travelling at excessive speed in wet road conditions crashed into an unoccupied parked car. The officer, who was responding to a burglary, was travelling over 100 kph in a 50 kph zone before losing control of the vehicle on a slight bend just before the crash. The officer pleaded guilty to a charge of operating a motor vehicle carelessly. Police also conducted an employment investigation and imposed a sanction. The Authority is satisfied with how Police conducted their investigations and the outcomes they reached.
