Dear Ti Lamusse
I have been asked to let you know that Police requires an extension of
time in which to respond to your below request.
This extension is pursuant to Section 15A(1) of the Official Information
Act 1982, as there is consultation needed which prevents a proper response
to be created within the original time limit. 
Police require until 5 June 2019 to provide a substantive response to your
request. 
You have the right to ask the Ombudsman to review this extension. 

Kind regards
Ministerial Services
