From: HEATH, Nicholas (Nick)
New Zealand Police

Good afternoon Thomas,

 

Police are needing to redeploy staff in the face of unprecedented
circumstances as we respond to Covid-19.

 

This will have a severe impact on our ability to respond to requests for
information under the Official Information Act 1982 and Privacy Act 1993
in a timely fashion.

 

Priority will be given to requests from media on matters of high public
interest. We appreciate this will be frustrating for some people but
please know we are doing everything we can to keep our communities safe.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Nicholas Heath
