Dear Mr Holmes
 
I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act (OIA) request,
received by NZ Police on 29 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.
