Kiwis have high levels of trust in police

Kiwis continue to have high levels of trust and confidence in police, according to the results of the latest citizens' satisfaction survey.
The independently run survey asked almost 10,000 people throughout the country their views about police, their feelings of safety and what their experience was like if they recently had contact with police.
Deputy police commissioner Viv Rickard says it's pleasing to see trust and confidence remain so high.
"At 77 per cent, [the] New Zealand police's overall trust and confidence rating would also be the envy of many overseas police forces," he said.

Got to have the Police. Necessary evil, though (like SIS/GCSB etc spooks, we have to have them too). Some Police officers, from personal experience are foul mouthed and plain rude when replying to polite enquiries. Still, they come from the general population who are the same. Rudeness is endemic in NZ.

Its quite sad really. Those men and woman go to work each day and put themselves at risk for people like LOL, Truth and Peter. I wonder why they do not like the police. Purhaps a night in the cell or a speeding ticket or two. The fact remains that there are only so many police they can only attend so many jobs they cant be everything to everyone. At the same time they have to deal with a legal system they protects the criminal and lawyers that abuse the system. They also have to deal with criminals who take from others without care and then claim abuse by the police when they are caught. This should only make people respect police more.

@ Peter & "Truth": Nothing enrages the anti-police brigade more than independent, credible research! It's hard when the facts get in the way of your rhetoric isn't it.

Trust? What about David Bain, Scott Guy, Clint Rickards etc etc. The list goes on and on. Kiwis have got their heads in the sand.
