Police membership of forums with private investigators and security consultants

Harold made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

The request was successful.

From: Harold

Dear New Zealand Police,

The Police Manual section “Private Investigators and Security Consultants requests to Police for assistance” sets out best practice for Police involvement in "multi-agency groups or forums" that have private investigation companies or security consultancies in their membership.

For every multi-agency group or forum which Police are a member of alongside a private investigation company or security consultancy, I request the following information:

The name of the group
The date the group formed (month and year)
The identity of all agencies and companies represented in the group’s membership
The purpose of the group

Yours faithfully,
