Tactical Options Reporting Data January-December 2019

Mark Hanna made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Police, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mark Hanna

Tēnā koe,

On four previous occasions (ref 16/11336, 16/7758/11, IR-01-18-5190, and IR-01-20-34818), NZ Police has released tactical options reporting (TOR) data under the Official Information Act for periods between 1 July 2016 and 31 December 2018.

The most recent TOR data released under the OIA, covering 1 January - 31 December 2018, was released in a spreadsheet format with some columns removed and some others recoded.

I understand that the decisions about which information to withhold and which information to recode were made in consultation with the Office of the Ombudsman, to reach a compromise that would satisfy the scope of my earlier request in a way that was achievable by Police.

As the most recently released data is now over two years old, I would like to request some more recent tactical options reporting data.

Please release the following information:

1. TOR data for the 1 January - 31 December 2019 reporting period, in the same format as was released for the January-December 2018 reporting period (ref IR-01-20-34818).

Please also explain any relevant caveats that should be kept in mind when analysing this information.

Please provide all information, including the response letter, in an accessible, searchable format. Please provide the TOR data in a machine-readable format such as CSV or XLSX. I’d be happy if the XLSX format that has been used to release the data covering 2018 is used again.

If any part of my request is unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Ngā mihi,
Mark Hanna
