A police recruit was fired, days before graduation, after she was found to be living with a member of the Mongrel Mob.
The relationship was not picked up by police vetting procedures and only discovered days before the woman was due to graduate from the Royal New Zealand Police College, earlier this year.
It’s understood the pair were living together in the upper North Island.
Police deputy chief executive Kaye Ryan refused to give specific details about the recruit for privacy reasons but said there was no evidence the gang had “attempted to deliberately infiltrate police” through the rookie.
“Police can confirm a recruit’s employment was terminated this year after an undisclosed conflict of interest relating to a personal relationship was revealed,” she said. “An investigation determined that whilst at Police College, the recruit did not access any Police databases inappropriately.”.
