Dear Mr Farrell
 
I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act (OIA) request
received by NZ Police on 7 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. We will do our best to respond to you as soon
as we can.
 
Thank you for your understanding.
 
Kind regards
Ministerial Services

Tēnā koe Daniel

 

I am emailing in regards to your recent Official Information Act request
relating to Police pursuits. I note that your request is due tomorrow (8
May 2020) however, please accept our apologies that it is unable to be
released by this time.

 

This is because Police are needing to redeploy staff in the face of
unprecedented circumstances as we respond to COVID-19. This has a severe
impact on our ability to respond to requests for information under the
Official Information Act 1982 in a timely fashion, and impacts the
availability of staff to review Official Information Act responses as
required.

 

We appreciate this will be frustrating but please know we are doing
everything we can to keep our communities safe. We will endeavour to get
the response to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Ngā mihi
