The Minister of Police is a minister in the government of New Zealand with responsibility for the New Zealand Police.

The present Minister is Stuart Nash, a member of the Labour Party.[2]

History

Initially responsibility for the police force had rested with the Minister of Defence but was instead allocated to the Minister of Justice in 1896.[3] The minister responsible for police was the holder of either aforementioned office until it was later split into a separate portfolio. In 1935 Walter Nash was appointed Minister of Police, despite holding neither the Defence or Justice portfolios (Nash was concurrently Minister of Finance and Minister of Customs).
