Review of Police management of fraud allegations 

15 November 2022 

In a report released today, the Independent Police Conduct Authority has found major deficiencies in the way in which Police are responding to fraud complaints, which potentially undermines trust and confidence in not only NZ Police but the criminal justice system generally. However, addressing these deficiencies is only part of the solution to New Zealand’s overall fraud problem.  To meaningfully reduce the number of New Zealanders affected by fraud we recommend Police lead the development of a fraud prevention strategy incorporating both public and private sector agencies.
