FAREWELL BRIAN HARTLEY 
Brian Hartley

Retired Police Superintendent Brian Hartley left us suddenly, aged 84, on 14 August 2022. The team here at the Police Managers' Guild Trust would like to extend our most sincere condolences to Brian's Family, Friends, Colleagues and anyone lucky enough to have known him. 

Brian was the Driving Force behind the formation of the PMGT in 1997, a Trustee since the PMGT was formed and was elected a Life Member in 2019.

Under his careful and diligent guidance, the PMGT has donated over $3,500,000 to the victims of crime and produced education to benefit millions of Kiwis.

Brian's extraordinary example and legacy is one that will further motivate us to stop crime and save lives.

SUPPORTER SHOWCASE

SEW-Eurodrive

As a worldwide leading manufacturing company, SEW-Eurodrive is moving the world! Countless conveyor belts, bottling plants, gravel plants, luggage at the airport and much more would stand still without their motors, gear units, gearmotors, corresponding automation technology and range of services.

SEW-Eurodrive has been a supporter for PMGT for over 8 years now; helping us to distribute our crime prevention education to over 25,000 kiwis, informing the public on matters such as child safety, domestic violence, alcohol abuse and more as well as allowing us to fund a wide range of community support organisations and services.

Sincerely, thank you to John Hainsworth and the staff at SEW-Eurodrive for their ongoing support - from the team at NZPMGT.

GUILD NEWS

The New Zealand Police Managers’ Guild Trust are proud to have helped the NZ Fiji Schools Rugby Sevens in reaching their financial goals to allow young Fijian boys from across the country to come together and play a game that they love whilst honouring their heritage. 

Whilst Fiji did not win (NZ Condors won both boys & girls competitions), the NZ Fijians never gave up, scoring the last try of the match through Ratu Kuli Naleisomosomo within the last minute. We are convinced there is an abundance of future Fijian stars with the team. 

The boys blasted out a note or two at the powhiri for the team which was an exceptional event in itself and the team are now taking the opportunity to review what they did well, what could have been done better, and are planning to win the title in the next edition of the World School 7’s in December 2022. We have every confidence that the boys will do an astounding job. 

‘’I therefore wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the part you and the NZ Police Managers Guild Trust played in helping us. What we did would not have been possible without your very kind support. Again a big Vinaka vakalevu from our entire NZ Fiji Schools 7’s squad’’ - Inspector Jim Wilson.

COMMUNITY GRANTS

Our latest community grant, Blake Paynter was the recipient of our NZPMGT grant to assist him with advancing in the sport of rowing with a view of gaining a scholarship to study in the United States. 

In March 2021, Blake was titled the 6th fastest under-18 single scull rower in New Zealand. Following that, his rowing times and on-water speeds are alongside the fastest junior rowers in New Zealand. 

As of 19th January 2022, Blake was able to commence study at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida USA. He has received an athletic scholarship to be a part of a rowing team and is lined up to be in the stroke seat of their top eight. 

We also congratulate Blake on maintaining a high standard in his academic school work and scoring in the top 7% in his SATs. This means he has also been awarded an academic scholarship from the university and has selected to study Business for a 4-year degree.

‘’The journey to achieve this has been filled with hard work, perseverance, and cannot be achieved without the support of many people including the kind support from the New Zealand Police Managers Guild Trust. Our family would like to express that we are very thankful for the support you have given Blake and hope you can feel the same level of proudness that we feel as parents of him.  When he is racing, you can feel that you are in the boat with him and part of the team.’’ - Marc Paynter and family.

Your donations help us to continue to offer practical help to people and families wishing to reach their goals.

What a pleasure it is to support you guys, you do such great work. Keep up the good work! 🤩

Fog really, how about permanent dye in the mist. Dairy owners should have doors like they have in banks installed courtesy of the parents of these miscreants

Fog out and lost sell for the day

I dont think such a scheme will work. What about those who dont qualify? Does the govt.really need to subsidize such alarms ? Why not let businesses have independence to alarm themselves? Subsidy is a slow process. Bisinesses need protection right away.

Hope the t op brass at police hq, arw more police than poloticians

To much difficult red tape by pencil pusher allll dairy s, and suptrettes and liquor store s, need themm now not in 6 months ww eehave weakling laws home dentintion aaa very weak punishment myy humble thoughts

Oh look, an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff.

To alll police inthe quild and police associations hope new pm doubles, police numbers and support staff last 49 years you have had budget and stafff cuts

Ruchika Sharma I hope they refund some people who already had theirs installed!

What are the alternatives? Mr Hayns encourages parents to use quiet time, backed up by time out when a child under 10 refuses to follow a reasonable request from a parent.The child has to sit still and quietly for a 30-second period for each year of his age (up to a maximum of five minutes) in the same place the problem occurred.If the child refuses, he is sent for time out in a boring area of the house, such as a hallway, and must stay there until he has been quiet for the required time.Sending children to their bedroom, where there is likely to be a box full of toys and games, can serve as an accidental reward.Beth Wood, spokeswoman for the charitable trust Epoch (End Physical Punishment of Children), suggests a range of ideas and responses for adults which, if applied consistently, will encourage children to behave. These include:* Give positive attention - rewarding children with praise and hugs for good behaviour is more effective than criticising and punishing them for things they do wrong.* Ignore minor misbehaviour - intervene only if the behaviour is really bad or a child is in danger.* Disapprove of the behaviour, not the child.* Give children choices within reason and explanations that are appropriate for their age - children can understand reasons from about age 3 or 4.* Use mistakes as opportunities to show children how to get it right next time.* Set up a reward chart, which acknowledges good behaviour. When the child gets a certain number of stars or points, give a small reward, such as an outing or a special dinner.Help on child safety can be obtained here: https://pmgt.org.nz/child-safety/Thank you to Procut Concrete Cutters and Drillers and Terra Cat for supporting us on this topic.

🧐BIG difference between: disciplinary Smack | Hit | Thrash | Bash | Bully / Abuse (Physical &/Or Psychological) | Wound with intent | Maim | Kill - ☝🏼Good people know that - ☠️BAD people don’t care what the Law says‼️ Same applies to Animal Welfare, and FireArms🤷🏻‍♂️ Psychological abuse has a Lasting effect over a LIGHT disciplinary smack

Is pepper spray an tasers ok?

With the state of our child crime rates, child deaths, unruly children and teens since the anti smacking bill was introduced, I would say that the bill has failed. People need to discipline their children that they are responsible for, any way they see fit. Government keeps poking it nose where it has no business and the results are now showing.

This is hillarious, its the same techniques govt/mental health staff use to change the behaviour of disabled abused poor people they persecute degrade & deny basic human needs of shelter and food security to. In the psych wards they put people who object to neo-liberal free market fascism elitism advancing of rich by harming poor and middle class - they ask you to tell them your problems, then when you do they immediately leave & lock you in seclusion. Apparently you won't ever talk about your problems again with this sort of behaviour modification - won't talk about police beating you up, being denied health care, subjected to abusive welfare when you on long term disability, etc etc etc.Also District Inspector of Mental Health Annette Gray enjoyed telling me psych hospitals are allowed to use punitive measures to change behaviour. I been violently abused by police, I would much rather get violently assaulted than what some of those evil psycho staff in psych hospitals do to you, psychological abuse!

A blanket ban that could not be enforced was always bad legislation.

Not cool there kids there rules parents pay ur wages we should be telling u what to do after all u guys suck at finances and keep putting prices up

The youth doing ram raids and being a waste of space are definitely benefiting from this no smacking law!

We dont endorse the use of illegal drugs. But we do like to promote scientific testing and making informed decisions. When people have the knowledge, they can make better decisions.In the three months from April to June 2022, the Police’s wastewater testing estimated that as a nation, we consumed more than 8.5kg of MDMA (also known as ecstasy or molly) a week. That’s about 85,000 doses.But because drugs such as MDMA are illegal, there’s no way of guaranteeing that other, more harmful substances haven’t been added.In June, 12 people aged between 31 and 71 were hospitalised in Wairarapa after taking a white powder sold as both cocaine and meth. It turned out to contain fentanyl, a potent drug which is active in much smaller doses.

Just one issue here is that these cars typically cost 4 to 5 times what the average Kiwi can afford to spend on a car so the vast majority of us just get by on what we can afford.It's actually a bit sad. After years, decades even, of grim faced senior regional road safety commanders tell us that our biggest issue as road users was our generally shonky attitude that instead of trying to fix the attitude the emphasis has swung to -1. Lower speed limits so our crashes will be less injurious and...2. Trying to persuade us to buy vehicles that we can't afford which are more "crash-worthy".NZTA/NZ Police's New road safety motto may as well borrow from Gladwrap's Wendy Meyer's signature line, slightly tweaked, "Better crashing everyone".

Still keeping my falcon just to aggravate people. Plus. We're all going to die. The question is just how and when.
