Please consider signing this Petition to make it mandatory for N.Z. Police Officers to wear body camera's when on duty

Lianne from Glenview

Quoting from the abovementioned link; "The purpose of the petition "is to provide evidence for both the public and police to prove that both parties are acting in good faith with each other, and also to be used as evidence for any complaints filed against the Police as there otherwise may be no evidence to be provided. I feel that body cameras will provide sufficient evidence with both video and audio recording, and will also allow easier supervision of police and prove no over-stepping of powers."

Remember what has happened recently overseas and in N.Z. where Police body cameras have captured evidence of misconduct, brutality and even death.

This National Volunteer Week, we’re recognising all the amazing volunteers who form the backbone of emergency response in Aotearoa and support their communites every day.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
When Aotearoa faces challenging times, Kiwis always step up to support people in need. Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring that we get through, together.

“Every day, a network of 11,000 Red Cross volunteers and members across the country help us respond to disasters, settle new Kiwis, help run our shops, deliver Meals on Wheels, teach former refugees how to drive, sew curtains for families in need, and so much more. Last financial year, Red Cross volunteers gave close to 120,000 hours of their time. They are the hands and feet of almost everything we accomplish,” says Niamh Lawless, our Secretary General.
