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

From: Andrew Geddis

Dear New Zealand Police,

I request the Operational Policing Guidelines issued on or about 25 March, 2020 for the commencement of New Zealand's "Level 4 Lockdown", as well as any subsequent amendments or updates to these Guidelines. The document(s) I seek provide guidance to frontline officers as to enforcement of the Health Act 1956, s70(m) notice and powers under the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Act 2002.

Please note that I do not seek the Guidelines issued on April 3. Rather, I am requesting the original guidelines to frontline police that preceded the issuance of the April 3 document.

Yours faithfully,
Prof Andrew Geddis
Faculty of Law
University of Otago

Dear Prof Geddis
 
I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act (OIA) request
below, received by NZ Police on 4 May 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
