Explain the 3 specific intervention indicators when measuring success?

1. Intervention indicators: measure progress of specific action plan initiatives.  They will be updated in each action plan to ensure they stay relevant.

2. Safety Performance indicators: are what the Government seeks to improve through successful programme delivery.  They are enduring and will be monitored throughout the duration of the strategy.

3. Outcome indicators: relate closely to the overarching goal.  Like the safety performance indicators they are enduring and will be monitored throughout the duration of the strategy.


What are Road Policing Response I relation to "Our Goals"?

New Zealand Police's purpose is to ensure everyone can be safe and feel safe - on the roads and in our communities.  It is 'Our Business' to make Aotearoa the safest country. 


Explain "Our Goals" in relation to Policing?
Clue: 3x

1. Safe Homes
- Safe homes means families free from violence; abuse and neglect.  It means preventing burglary and other threats to the places where people should always feel safe.

2. Safe Roads
- Safe Roads means working with our partners to prevent death and injury resulting from crashes so that everyone who leaves home in the morning can return safely at the end of the day.

3. Safe Communities
- Safe communities means that people are safe and feel safe wherever they go and whatever they do.  It means safe public spaces where businesses, social gatherings and entertainment can be enjoyed without fear of crime or harm.


Explain "Working in Partnership" for Police in relation to Road to Zero strategy?
Clue: 3x provided

- The Road to Zero Action Plan 2020-2022 was developed in partnership between Police, the Ministry of Transport and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

- The Road Safety Partnership Programme was developed to directly contribute to achieving the target of a 40% reduction in road deaths and serious injuries over ten years.

- The programme focuses road policing activity on the high-risk behaviours of restraints, impairment, distraction, and speed (RIDS).  A total of 75% of the investment in this programme is targeted to these areas.


Explain "Whole Police approach" perspective in relation to Road to Zero strategy?
Clue: 3x provided

- We will approach road safety from a 'whole of Police' perspective, recognizing that:

1. Some road safety risks have their genesis in other areas - organized crime, family violence, alcohol harm, and youth

2. Road safety is achieved through more than enforcement alone, and requires a strong focus on prevention activities to ensure we achieve our goals alongside our road safety partners

3. Success in reducing trauma on New Zealand roads relies heavily on understanding and deploying to risk, and a genuine whole of Police approach.

- All Police officers will conduct road policing enforcement and undertake prevention activities.


Explain 4 ways of "Setting Strategy" in relation to Policing "Road to Zero"?

1. To be effective, we must have the freedom to define and respond to problems that contribute to risk.  We will use all available strategies and options to deliver effective, holistic approach to road safety while continuing to be innovative.

2. We trust our people to make good decisions to resolve and prevent future offending.

3. The issuing of infringements will be conducted when and where appropriate but they are not our sole option - we will think more holistically.

4. Police has a strong evidence basis to determine what works, including the Integrated Intervention Logic Model (IILM) for road policing as well as intelligence and research products.


Explain the 4 targets when Policing "Road to Zero"?
Clue: R.I.D.S.

1. Restraints
- We want all vehicle occupants to wear restraints at all times to maximise crash survival probability
- All operational staff will focus on ensuring road users use restraints or helmets

2. Impairment
- We want to prevent impairment- related crashes (alcohol, drugs, and fatigue) entirely
- We will increase deterrence to minimize the impact of comorbidity (preventing a person driving intoxicated also prevents the associated higher speed, distraction, and non-use of seatbelts)

3. Distractions
- We want all drivers to focus on the task of driving and to expect the unexpected
- All operational staff will focus on ensuring road users are not driving while distracted

4. Speed
- We want to reduce crash severity through the reduction of mean speed across the network
- We will conduct speed enforcement focused on identified risk, according to the quality of the intervention activity, and the right magnitude.


When 'Enabling Delivery', what are the 5 "Critical Command Information" required?

1. Repeat Registrations Report
2. Road Safety Partnership
3. Tasking and Coordination
4. Tools (OnDuty)
5. Local Stakeholder Partnerships


What Performance Expectations are required of Police regarding Road to Zero strategy?
Clue: 2x provided

1. We expect that Police will be enabled to reduce the identified risks by deploying the right resources to the right place at the right time.

2. Police will also expand on existing partnerships to evaluate outcomes against prevention based programmes, ensuring high levels of performance are achieved and maintained.
