Family Harm is a new approach launched by Police nationally in May 2018
and all previous reference to Family Violence Investigations are now
called Family Harm Investigations. It aims to reduce the harm families in
New Zealand are experiencing and involves partnering with iwi, community
and other agencies. The police code 1D ’Domestic Incident’ has changed to
5F ‘Family Harm Investigation’. This change represents a transformation in
the way Police deal with Family Harm and Violence. Police recognise the
harmful context in which violence occurs, determine who is at risk, and
put measures in place to keep those at risk safe for at least 72 hours
following initial scene attendance. Given the episodic nature of harm,
Police identify violence offences in 25-30% of reported episodes. This
approach provides greater opportunity for Police and partners to take
every opportunity to prevent harm. Attached for reference is a one page
infographic with some additional information on our new approach to Family
Harm.

I trust this information is sufficient for your purposes. If you have any
questions regarding this data, please feel free to contact me via

Yours sincerely,
