New Zealand Police

Dear Ms Cox
 
I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act (OIA) request
below, received by NZ Police on 13 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
