Dear Mr Roberts
 
I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act (OIA) request
below, received by NZ Police on 4 April 2020.
 
As you are aware, 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 OIA in a timely fashion. However, we recognise your request is a
matter of high public interest, and we will do our best to respond to you
as soon as we can.
 
Thank you for your understanding.
 
Kind regards
Ministerial Services
PNHQ
