Police attempt to save money led to blowout – New Zealand news on Stuff.co.nz

The police can seem to do nothing right. In an attempt to save money they in face blew millions of taxpayers dollars.
[quote]”Instead of allowing the manufacturer, Aegis, who knew what they were doing, to measure the vests and guarantee under contract a 99 per cent success rate with the fit – at no risk to police, police decided to try to save money by doing the measuring themselves and accept the full financial risk of any mistakes made.

A decision that resulted in a $2.7 million blow out with no ability to recover those costs from Aegis.”[/quote]

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
