Project CARV Impact?
Project CARV “CARV had the collective recognition to influence. This is highlighted by the successful Select Committee representation on CYF Act changes for Liquor Infringement Notices and the significant survey work being conducted by the HBDHB. The needs analysis completed by CARV was also influential in the reallocation of available Police resources.” Kevin Kalff Area Commander, Napier
