Police employee breached policy when providing a character reference

22 December 2022

The Authority oversaw a Police employment matter where a Waikato employee breached policy by stating they worked for Police in a character reference they provided for a person who was to appear in Court. By stating their role with Police, the reference may have had more influence than it otherwise would have.

The employee received an appropriate employment outcome.
