What is Prevention First Now?

- The Prevention First National Operating Model supports a way of thinking that applies to all New Zealand Police and informs everything we do.

- Prevention First is designed to support and enhance the delivery of our key outcomes. (Be safe.  Feel safe.)


Under Prevention First and Our Business, what is the Prevention First MIND-SET?

- "Taking every opportunity to prevent harm".
(PHPF / Working closely with other agencies)


Explain "Prevention First puts people at the centre"?

- Prevention First puts people - Victims, Offenders, our staff - at the centre of our model.


What are the 3 CORE components of the Prevention First model?

- Deploy to beat demand
- Target the drivers of demand
- Mindset: taking every opportunity to prevent harm.


What are the 3 Core components supported by?

- The 3 components are supported through OUR PARTNERSHIPS.



- Effective partnerships:

. Police is uniquely placed to help other government agencies implement the social investment approach as "facilitators" and "connectors".

. Maori make up a disproportionate number of both offenders and victims, more than any other ethnicity.

. We MUST make full use of opportunities to enlist the support of our partner agencies, through interagency 'Tasking and Coordination', to deploy our combined resources to beat demand.


Explain "Deploy to beat demand"?

- We are prepared and flexible, allowing us to mobilize resources pre-emptively and quickly get on top of demand.


Explain Our Deployment Model?

- Provides a national framework to enable decision makers to deploy resources to the local environment using a consistent approach.

- "Crime triangle"
> Act with urgency against repeat and priority offenders
> Provide support and assistance to those repeatedly victimized.
> Maximise resources to locations that repeatedly suffer disproportionate levels of crime


Explain "Evidence-based Deployment"?

- We use tactics that have been proven to work, and we evaluate the results of our interventions to determine whether we achieved the desired outcome or need to refocus our efforts.


What are the 6 "Drivers of Demand"?

1. Mental Health
2. Alcohol
3. Youth (Rangatahi)
4. Organised crime and drugs
5. Roads
6. Families (Whanau)


Explanation for "Drivers of Demand"?

- The drivers of demand remain our focus.
- The change from drivers of crime to drivers of demand acknowledges that a large proportion of Police work involves responding to demand that is not necessarily criminal but which frequently offers OPPORTUNITIES FOR PREVENTING CRIME AND WIDER HARM in our communities.


Explanation for Families (Whanau)

- Vulnerable and dysfunctional families take up an increasing amount of Police time and generate significant "service demand" which is not reflected in the crime figures.
. We MUST continue to support and protect these whanau, lifting the veil of secrecy around family harm and child abuse in order to stop it, and exposing familial organized crime groups to prevent intergenerational cycles of harm.
- Family harm may be the "foot in the door" for Police.


Explanation for Youth (Rangatahi)

- Youth offenders often come from backgrounds of severe deprivation involving violence, alcohol, drugs and the absence of good role models.


Explanation for Roads

- Governments Safer Journeys strategy


Explanation for Mental Health

- Mental health issues are a significant driver of demand for Police services so Police will work closely with providers of health services to ensure those suffering mental distress are not a danger to themselves or others.


What is the "MIND-SET" of Prevention First?

- Taking every opportunity to prevent harm


Explain the "MIND-SET" of Prevention First?

- Putting the needs of Victims at the centre of Policing doesn't mean we forget about everyone else

- Our interactions with all people - Victims, Offenders, the public, our partners and each other - are what drive trust and confidence


Under the Prevention First model, explain our "Responsibility to Victims"?

- Our case management process supports Prevention First by providing information and support to victims at a challenging stage of their journey, as well as by holding offenders to account


Under the Prevention First model, explain our processes regarding "Repeat Victimisation"?
Clue: There are 2.

1. Our Victim Focus Framework
2. Graduated Response Model


Under the Prevention First model, explain "Our Victim Focus Framework"?

- Focuses on Victims from the first point of contact by providing staff with a Victim History Score to highlight previous victimization.


Under the Prevention First model, explain "Graduated Response Model"?

- For proactive intervention with the Victim, and an interagency response for high risk victims, for example: Governments Wellbeing Approach.


Under the Prevention First model, explain "Offender Management"?
Clue: there are 3

1. Dealing quickly and appropriately with offenders will always be core Police business.
2. The public rightly expects us to hold criminals to account.
3. Alternative Resolutions, such as Pre-charge Warnings, provide frontline staff with a wider range of resolution options for offenders.


Under the Prevention First model, explain "Locations"?

- We continue to focus on preventing harm in repeat locations. 
- By targeting repeat locations we can prevent harm to victims and reduce repeat offending.
- We need to better understand the relationship between time and place in order to effectively target our prevention activities towards those locations associated with a disproportionate amount of offending.


Under the Prevention First model, explain how we will "Deliver on Our PURPOSE"?

- Our Values and our Code of Conduct set the standards by which our interactions will be measured, both within the organization and by the members of the public that we interact with every day.
- Our leaders are expected to be role models for Prevention First thinking at all levels.
- Prevention First provides clear guidance regarding the principles that must drive our decision making


Under the Prevention First model, explain how we will "Deliver on MINDSET"?

- Taking every opportunity to prevent harm by:
> Demonstrating Values and Code of Conduct
> Provide a proactive and consistent service to Victims and offenders
> Build relationships
> Focus on Victims needs
> Create useful VIPs


Under the Prevention First model, explain "Te Huringa o te Tai"?
Clue: About the strategy, 3 POU

- Set within the framework of Police's Prevention First Operating Model, Te Huringa o te Tai focuses Police's effort around 3 POU (O.E.E.):
1. Our people and our mindset
2. Effective initiatives and improved practice
3. Effective partnerships

- This strategy is about whanau - about all of us


Under the Prevention First model, "Te Huringa o te Tai", explain 'Turning STRATEGY into action'.
Clue: there are 3 parts

- 3 strategic pou provide a framework for how Police can best contribute to improving outcomes for Maori and reduce offending and victimization

- A 'one size fits all' approach will not deliver a long-term sustainable solution

- Te Huringa o te Tai will be the driving force behind Police achieving 25% reduction in reoffending by Maori and 90% of people having Trust and Confidence in Police


Under "Te Huringa o te Tai", explain the 1st Pou - Mataara: Our People and their mind-set?

- Adopting a Te Ao Maori view, through the alignment of uara (values/mission/vision) Maori with our values, will ensure culturally responsive initiatives and programmes, which restore and strengthen the wellbeing of individuals, whanau and communities, are developed and implemented (PHPF)


Under "Te Huringa o te Tai", explain the 2nd Pou - Mataaho: Effective initiatives and improved practice?

- We will focus on a whanau ora approach of co-design and joint delivery of initiatives with Iwi Maori.
- Increasing our understanding of kaupapa Maori frameworks to develop tikanga Maori interventions and programmes will enhance our ability to improve long term outcomes for Maori.
- Taking every opportunity to prevent harm


Under "Te Huringa o te Tai", explain the 3rd Pou - Hourua: Effective partnerships?

- We will focus on building relationships, which lead to more effective partnerships, with Iwi, Maori and other organisations.

- Investment in Iwi Maori partnerships:
. Working together, Iwi Maori and Police can enhance the value that each other brings to strengthen the pathways to waiora for Maori

- Everyone taking responsibility
