Who are the New Zealand Police Managers' Guild Trust?
Established in 1997 as a charitable trust, the Police Managers’ Guild Trust provides straightforward, useful information that helps people avoid becoming victims of crime and works toward a safer community for you, your families and your businesses.
The Trust achieves this by educating communities through the use of its annual Police Managers’ Guild Trust Journals, this website, social media and through strategic alliances with the business community.
These cover themes such as Drug and Alcohol awareness, Family Violence, building a Safer Community together, Better Parenting, Crime Prevention, and Child Safety (see topics on left menu).
Publications are approximately 40 pages in length. 4.5 million Journals have been distributed free of charge since inception to the public in all 13 policing districts throughout New Zealand.
This is made possible with thanks to over 20,000 local businesses, which support the Trust through sponsorship and advertising. The money raised from advertisers helps with the production and distribution of the journals as well as the ongoing development of our crime prevention educational resources.
Additionally, the Police Managers’ Guild Trust has returned in excess of 3.5 million dollars to New Zealand communities with impetus to reduce the impact of crime.
