The New Zealand Police Christian Support Network.

The purpose of the Police Christian Support Network in New Zealand.

History

Over the years there have been Christian Police staff who have discussed forming some sort of Police Christian group. A renewed impetus in 2004 led to a consultation held at the RNZPC in August 2004 where about 20 Christian staff and chaplains, from various parts of the country, gathered for a weekend to explore the need for, and viability of, a national Christian Police group.

In 2005 a small group worked on forming a policy which would bring the Network into being, and give it recognised status within the Police. The Network officially came into being in September 2005 when the Police Executive signed off the Police Christian Support Network policy.
