From: BAW Russell

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am interested in the age of people being pursued by police and outcomes for them. I am aware that a lot of information is publicly available, but there are some gaps in the data that I am looking to fill. Can you please provide:

*the number of serious injuries and deaths (separately) for drivers, other vehicle occupants, police and third parties (e.g. pedestrians or other drivers not involved in the pursuit)
*the number and nature of charges following pursuits
*the age of all occupants of vehicles involved in a pursuit (including the number where ages are unknown)
*the number of pursuits abandoned broken down by the age of the driver (including the number where ages are unknown).

Please provide all this data for the last ten years.
Yours faithfully,

BAW Russell
