1.3 - Analysis of Significant Trends

Between 2018/19 and 2021/22, Departmental Output Expenses will increase by $113.618 million (6.4%).

The increase largely relates to two significant funding packages:

  • Striving Towards 1800 New Police $83.200 million - funding towards the 2017 New Zealand Labour Party and New Zealand First Coalition Agreement goal to "Strive towards adding 1800 new Police officers over three years and commit to a serious focus on combatting organised crime and drugs", and
  • Safe, Confident and Resilient Communities: Investment in Policing $61.095 million - a package of initiatives across the justice sector that will significantly improve policing services for all New Zealanders. This includes funding for an additional 880 sworn officers and 245 other employees.

These are partially offset by:

  • time limited funding for Radio Assurance $11.640 million
  • time limited funding for Integrated Safety Response programme $11.196 million, and
  • completion of the deployment mission for the Solomon Islands Policing Support Programme $2.735 million.

Departmental Output Expenses increased by $181.012 million (12.0%) between 2013/14 to 2017/18, mainly due to new funding for increased personnel costs $169.773 million and the Road Policing Programme $17.997 million.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will decrease by $3.645 million (2.5%) to $141.041 million for 2018/19.

The decrease mainly relates to a one-off transfer in 2017/18 of $8.029 million from other appropriations to this appropriation in order to align resource requirements with demand and activities.

This is partially offset by:

  • new funding in 2018/19 of $2.255 million for Striving Towards 1800 New Police
  • higher funding in 2018/19 for Safe, Confident and Resilient Communities: Investment in Policing $1.031 million, and
  • increased funding in 2018/19 for Reform of Family Violence Law $990,000.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will increase by $8.777 million (4.5%) to $202.151 million for 2018/19.

The increase mainly relates to:

  • new funding of $5.177 million in 2018/19 for Striving Towards 1800 New Police
  • new funding of $3.478 million for Burglary Prevention and Target Hardening
  • higher funding in 2018/19 for Safe, Confident and Resilient Communities: Investment in Policing $3.265 million, and
  • expense transfers from 2017/18 to 2018/19 for Integrated Safety Response - Pilot: NGO Contracts for Local Services to Families $400,000 and Proximity Alarms $220,000.

These are partially offset by one-off transfer in 2017/18 of $4.260 million from other appropriations to this appropriation in order to align resource requirements with demand and activities.

These are partially offset by one-off funding in 2017/18 of $1.900 million for Reimbursement of Civil Recovery Action Costs.
