Commission of Inquiry into Police Conduct

3 April 3007

I have noted the 12 recommendations in the Report specifically concerned with the handling of complaints by the Police Complaints Authority. I intend to action those recommendations that are my particular responsibility and have already commenced work to implement a number of them.

I also look forward to working with Government on any response that Government might have to the recommendations that require legislative reform. The starting point for a more robust, independent and effective Police Complaints Authority is clearly the revision of its enabling statute.

Justice Lowell Goddard
