Press Release: New Zealand First Party

New Zealand First social services spokesperson Bill Gudgeon has praised the new domestic violence investigation system initiated by the Wairarapa police.

“Every two weeks, a team from the Police, Child Youth and Family, Courts, Women’s Refuge and Stopping Violence services meet to discuss the cases of domestic violence reported in the area,” Mr Gudgeon said.

“Every incident reported to police is now investigated and already the team is starting to see fewer cases where violence is repeated.

“For too long agencies have been working in isolation in an attempt to combat the incidence of domestic violence and child abuse.

“It is encouraging to see the move towards greater collaboration between agencies, and I would urge police in other areas to follow Wairarapa’s lead,” Mr Gudgeon concluded.


  1. Interesting to see that men’s groups are still excluded from these “collaboration” meetings. In 1997, members of Men’s Centre North Shore unsuccessfully attempted to participate in their local networking meetings.
