Tēnā koe Donna

 

I refer to your request of 17 June 2021 for the following information:

 

Requesting information and communications,  between/ from the Police
Commissioner, District Commanders, Area Commanders including the Police
Minister with regard to decisions on funding and deployment of Police
youth engagement officers in the community since March 2020 till present
day.

 

Please provide statistics on how many Police youth engagement officers,
community officers, and neighbourhood policing teams there are in New
Zealand, and hours that these officers including youth engagement officers
spend dedicated to working in their positions.

 

I have been asked to advise you that Police requires an extension of time
in which to respond to your request, pursuant to section 15A(1) of the
Official Information Act  1982 (OIA). Specifically, section 15A(1)(a), the
request necessitates a search through a large quantity of information and
meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the
operations of the organisation.

 

Police require until 27 August 2021 to provide a substantive response to
your request.

 

You have the right, under section 28(3) of the OIA, to make a complaint to
an Ombudsman about this extension.

 

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this
decision, please feel free to contact
[1][email address].

 

Ngā mihi
