George Warren Hawkins

George Warren Hawkins (1946 - ) is a New Zealand politician. He is a member of the Labour Party. He has served as MP for Manurewa since he was first elected to Parliament in the 1990 elections. He served as Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister of Police, Minister of Civil Defence, and Minister of Veterans' Affairs in the 2002-2005 parliamentary term. He has previously held office as mayor of Papakura. Before entering politics, he was a teacher.

Disappointed at being ranked 25th on the 2005 Labour Party list, he withdrew his name from the list, and won the Manurewa seat with a comfortable margin of over 12,000 votes (a similar majority to his 2002 election win).

Although Hawkins was criticised over his handling of police issues, in particular 111 calls, he remained a Minister until he made the decision not to seek a new position in Cabinet after the 2005 election.
