Feeling safe?

The police continue to tolerate male police officers abusing their power:

An internal police investigation found Peter Govers, former head of Horowhenua CIB, was guilty of disgraceful conduct for forming an inappropriate relationship with the woman, One News reported.

The single mother of two, identified only as Tania, said she had received a formal apology from police, but was angry that Mr Govers remained in the force.

He has been demoted to senior constable, transferred to a desk job in Palmerston North and is not allowed to seek promotion for a year or work as a detective for at least two years.
Haven't we come a long way. This police officer who is abusing his power will have to wait two years before he becomes a detective. That'll slow down his path to assistant commissioner.
