Next Generation Critical Communications (NGCC): Replacing Emergency Services Critical Communications
This initiative establishes a new critical communications system for Emergency Services (Police, Fire and Emergency New Zealand, St John and Wellington Free Ambulance). It will support healthier, safer and more connected communities by replacing existing networks with a modern digital communications capability that is reliable, secure and meets operational needs.
Specialist Responses to Strangulation - Addressing Family Violence
This initiative provides non-fatal strangulation forensic services for evidential purposes where non-fatal strangulation has occurred. This will assist with ensuring there is evidential sufficiency to inform prosecutions pursuant to the Solicitor-General's Prosecution Guidelines. It will also enable victims to have access to a highly trained medical practitioner and ensure appropriate referrals are made.
