This Index site is being developed over the first part of 2003.  NetLaw is interested in maintaining a full site on the study and implementation of ideas dedicated to the prevention of crime.

We have included direct links to a number of related criminal law topics in the boxes at the top and the bottom of this page.

We now provide you with a direct link to the Crime Prevention Unit which is an important office of the Government.

Strengthening Families

We all know how essential is positive parenting.  We suggest it is the most important tool in the fight against crime. 

We provide you with a direct link to a very interesting and helpful section from the Website of the Child, Youth and Family Service.

If we could get these sort of programmes and ideas before every young parent, then we would go a long way in reducing crime in the following generations. 

There is a very good site in International Crime Prevention which is well worth a visit.  We provide another direct link below.

"I find this topic really helpful as well as all the topics under the "Weekend Arrest" topic. This is the sort of basic informatin which needs to be taught in schools. Don't you agree?"

"Can a woman aged 54 with a 16 year old child who is neither attending school or any other form of education/training continue to claim the DPB and child support indefinitely or should the child be on a separate independant benefit? and what if the child does not claim a benefit, does this justify the mothers ongoing DPB claim? - Jenny

Netlaw replies - Yes . . . . You go on to what is called a "Woman Alone" Benefit designed to allow the single parent to continue to be supported when the kids become independent. You need to discuss your circumstances with WINZ. The child may be entitled to an Independent Youth benefit, but they are not automatic. Special circumstances need to apply. Play around on the WINZ Website. Just type winz website into Google or your internet explorer.

Here is a quote from the WINZ Website. -

"To get a Domestic Purposes Benefit you'll need to be a sole parent, or a caregiver of someone sick or infirm, or a woman alone of 50 years of age or older. You must:

be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
have lived in New Zealand continuously for two years or more at any one time since becoming a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident (except refugees with permanent residence)
normally live in New Zealand".

"What do you do if you actually arrest someone?

Netlaw replies - You must deliver that person forthwith to a Police officer. You must not use unreasonable force."

"I did my own documents and got before a Judge and got my own order for protection. I reckon I did it faster then my lawyer last time I need such an order two years ago.

"I found all your criminal law topics fascinating. I may become a criminal myself just to use your site. Nah, only joking but I liked Self Defence, Citizens Arrest and Drink Driving and Demerit Points.

"Great to find all this information at my fingertips.
I think that Home Detention is a bit of a sop. Either you go to prison or you do not! I think it is almost like getting off! Mike H - Wellington"
