The NZ Police are currently undertaking a review of the way they administer the Arms Act, and TSNZ members are encouraged to attend the meetings around NZ that have been set up to enter the discussions and give feedback. The Police announcement is below, along with a link to the meeting dates and locations. This is an important matter for all our members, so if you have the time and can get to a meeting, please do go along.
Firearms Project Community Discussion Sessions
In Police’s effort to review and improve the administration of the Arms Act, the Arms Act Service Delivery Group is looking closely at how Police can best deliver firearms related services to the public in a timely, consistent, and cost effective manner.
To assist with this work, the project team are looking to meet with Police district staff and firearms user community members for participatory discussion sessions in all police districts. These sessions are designed in a way that it will enable you to contribute creatively to the current thinking around challenges, opportunities, needs, and wants of the firearms community when interacting with Police for Arms Act related services. We want to hear about any insights you may have from your interaction with the Police and external agencies involved in the delivery of services. We will also take time to understand from you what you think the areas are that we need to focus on, and how we may improve our service model to deliver consistent, timely, and efficient services to you. During the workshop, you will have a chance to ask questions, have open and genuine discussion, and provide any feedback to help us shape our understanding of unique issues in your community.
All firearms community members are welcome to attend.
