ThinkingShift wiki watch

Kim photoNot sure why I should be surprised that the dudes in the NZ police force have a wiki. Good to see! The kiwis are developing a Policing Act in 2008 and the Police Act review is being thrown open to the public to comment and help with the drafting process (what?….transparency and openness…gasp!). The Police Act 1958 and Police Regulations 1992 are being revamped. To help in developing the legislation, all sorts of consultation documents are also made available, such as Policing Directions in New Zealand for the 21st Century, which outlines the proposed changes to the law that enables New Zealand police do their jobs. They are even inviting comments and suggestions from New Zealand’s youth about policing their future.

Media resources and background papers are also available to enable average Joe citizen to participate. And there’s a checklist showing milestones are being reached in the consultation and review process. Participatory legislation! Great stuff.

Intrigued, I did some digging around and uncovered more police wikis – Pennsylvania Police wiki (but it seems it’s inactive) and Louisiana State Police wiki. Couldn’t find much else and no sign of a NSW Police wiki.
