New Police ICT chief sought

Incumbent Mendes to retire

Police are looking for a new ICT manager, following the resignation of Rohan Mendes, who is retiring.

Advertisements placed over the past week for the position note that “an experienced ICT manager with a proven history of results at a senior management level” is sought.

The successful candidate will be based at the Royal New Zealand Police College at Porirua, near Wellington, and will report to the deputy commissioner of police.

Among the requirements for candidates is “proven experience in managing a very large ICT organisation”.

Applications close on January 4.

As well as finding a new ICT manager, tasks for police ICT in the new year include appointing technology capability suppliers and a unix server supplier. Both tenders have been advertised and responses are required by January 30.

Mendes' retirement comes at the same time as Police e-crime lab head Barry Foster is leaving to take up a position at forensics services company PPB McCallum Petterson.
