Tactical Options Reporting Data January-December 2018

Mark Hanna made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Police, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mark Hanna

Tēnā koe,

On three previous occasions (ref 16/11336, 16/7758/11, and IR-01-18-5190), NZ Police has released tactical options reporting (TOR) data under the Official Information Act for 6 month periods between 1 July 2016 and 31 December 2017.

I understand the annual TOR report covering the 2018 calendar year is being prepared for publication, and is now waiting on the completion of an internal review process before it is expected to be published this month. In light of this, I would like to request some more recent tactical options reporting data.

Please release the following information:

1. TOR data for the 1 January - 31 December 2018 reporting period, in the same format as was released for the July-December 2017 reporting period (ref IR-01-18-5190).

Please also explain any relevant caveats that should be kept in mind when analysing this information.

Please provide all information, including the response letter, in an accessible, searchable format. Please provide the TOR data in a machine-readable format such as CSV or XSLX. I’d be happy if the XSLX format that has been used to release this data previously is used again.

If any part of my request is unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If any of the information that I have requested is unavailable or would be difficult to retrieve, but similar information might be readily available, I would be happy to discuss altering or refining my request.

In each of the previous cases I mentioned in which TOR data has been released under the OIA, it was prepared for release prior to the publication of the TOR report based on that data. As the 2018 TOR report based on this data has already been prepared and is now undergoing internal review, I anticipate that there will now be significantly less work required for NZ Police to release the TOR data for this period.

Ngā mihi,
Mark Hanna

I refer to yourrequest of 1 October 2019 for TOR data.

Ihave been asked to let you know that Police requires an extension of time
in which to respond to your request. This extension is pursuant to section
15A(1) of the Official Information Act 1982, because the request
necessitates a search through large amounts of information suchthat a
proper response to the request cannot reasonably be made within the
original time limit.                                                     

Policerequire until 20 November 2019 to provide a substantive response to
your request. 

You have theright to ask the Office of the Ombudsman to review this
