Integrated Safety Response Pilot

In 2015, police were tasked with the primary responsibility of leading an Integrated Community Safety Response (FSN pilot later named Integrated Safety Response (ISR) pilot) in Hamilton and the Waikato policing district rural areas. 

As a result, HAIP lost its lead agency role in this approach but remains a key agency contributing to the goals of ISR by:

  • Accepting referrals and providing service/programmes for both men and women identified as needing support
  • Providing specialist Perpetrator Outreach Services (POS)
  • Working with Integrated Safety Response (ISR)
  • Working alongside Independent Victim Specialist (IVS) positions held by Refuge.

Other key agencies include Police, Corrections, ACC,  District Health Board (DHB), Ministry of Social Development (MSD), Refuge, Barnardos, Family Start, Parentline, Oranga Tamariki and other community and government agencies.

Our agency has a strong commitment to the provision of appropriate and quality services for indigenous people and non-indigenous peoples which reflects the intention behind our vision and mission statements, as well as policies on permanent staff employment, ethical standards of workers, structure of the agency, strategic planning, service delivery, reviewing programme content, professional development, and collaborative decision making processes, to name but a few.

Hence our approach in our programmes and services is inclusive of all cultures. To ensure this, HAIP have embraced and work within the overarching values of Manaakitanga, Kotahitanga, Whanaungatanga, Ukaipotanga and Pukengatanga applying principles of being/showing/displaying Tika, Pono, Aroha, Mauri Ora and Inspirare in our work and with each other.

Stand up, speak up and act. Together we can stop domestic violence and abuse.
