Fleeing Drivers in New Zealand - a collaborative review of events, practices, and procedures

15 March 2019


The Independent Police Conduct Authority and the New Zealand Police have jointly conducted a review of the fleeing driver environment and the application of existing policy. This report endorses the current policy approach to fleeing driver events but highlights eight recommendations to enhance Police understanding and application of the policy, including changes to the way these events are handled, the training given to officers and the way the events are recorded and investigated. Additionally, it highlights the need for further research to understand why some drivers flee.
