James Scott made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for James Scott to read a recent response and update the status.

From: James Scott

Dear New Zealand Police,

A video was posted to the New Zealand Police facebook page on November 28 2019.

The video shows vehicles on the Auckland Motorway failing to move out of the way for emergency vehicles under lights and sirens. It is available at the following link.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_f...

This clips in the video appears to be completely scripted by Police. In particular, the very first clip on the video shows a Police vehicle sitting behing the only vehicle on the motorway for some time instead of simply going around it. This is at odds with the advertising strategy which seems to have been to point out that every second responding to an emergency is critical.

Can I please have all documentation related to the commissioning, development, production and upload of the video under the OIA.

Yours faithfully,

JAMES
