Top 10 Most Wanted Criminals In New Zealand – 2022

Sponsored

While crime is high in New Zealand, Police can’t fight all the crime on their own. They will need the help of both you and me to find some of the most wanted criminals in the country.

They are doing their best to make the country a safer place for all citizens but they can’t make the country safe without our help.

Since you and I can’t arrest criminals because we were not trained to do so, the best thing to do is call on the police when we suspect or see someone in the act. Here, I have the top 10 most wanted criminals by New Zealand Police.

Phone 111 and ask for Police (e.g if you see or are near this person and your information may lead to their quick arrest).

Call or visit your nearest Police Station (e.g. if this person is not near you, but you have useful information about them).

Phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 (e.g. if you have information about this person but want to provide that information anonymously).
