PSPLA act enforcement

James Lochead made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

The request was partially successful.

From: James Lochead

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Could you please explain how may Private investigators who forgot to apply for or obtain a license under the PSPLA act have actually been charged with operating in breach. required since 1970's so the new act is not new to them.

Also how many people investigated as being a private investigator un-licensed, then obtained a license and how many are refused a license. dates for each case please.

Also have you been informed on any reported persons were operating in breach of the law whilst awaiting a license and were informed within the 6 months time limit of this?

If an objection had been made in response to a complaint, has the DIA made representation against the individual or company applying. (is so can I request copy of the representation to PSPLA)

Do you require a investigation to procutute... instead of the offering restriced services as per the act.

Yours faithfully,

James Lochead
