Jevon McSkimming

Assistant Commissioner, Service
New Zealand Police

Assistant Commissioner Jevon McSkimming, is responsible for delivery of Police’s ICT environment. Before this he was Director Mobility and Innovation, where he oversaw the award-winning Mobility Programme.

Jevon joined Police in 1996 after completing his studies in 1995. He has led substantial change management in large, complex departments and has delivered results and cost savings across Police.

Starting his career in Auckland, he completed front-line, Communications and Maritime roles before shifting to the far south where he took on a range of challenges as a rural and provincial sole charge officer.

An opportunity to re-write rural officers’ work terms and conditions saw him move to Wellington, followed by transfer to the Royal New Zealand Police College to run the promotion courses for Sergeant and Senior Sergeant ranks. As Deployment Manager for Wellington District, Jevon and his team played a key role in the model and process design for the New Zealand Police Prevention First Strategy.

With a young family to support, Jevon’s love of racing motorbikes has taken a break but he is still a keen glider pilot.
