inclues violence history, incidents, police referrals, complaints etc.).
Lastly, the Ministry can not provide you with the data broken down into

answered by the Ministry.  If you do not refine your request, the Ministry
will proceed with your original request. Please note that this is likely
to result in a partial refusal of your original request.

section 15(1AA) of the Official Information Act, the Ministry may treat
your amended or clarified request as a new request that replaces the
