Police Eagle pursuit footage

Mike Hunua 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: Mike Hunua

Dear New Zealand Police,

I'm inquiring on how unedited police eagle footage has been posted to youtube on an unofficial channel. How was this footage released?

See link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcAtTV_-...
The video title is "Police helicopter Chase | South Auckland | Eagle eye from above"

While it is excellent seeing eagle and police work and makes a great video, this isn't my question, my question is how was this released on to a non-official, non Police or Government related youtube channel with unredacted audio that also posts gang related videos as I imagine this footage and radio audio are secured under police ICT policies unless officially released? Has this been unofficially leaked via a data breach?

Yours faithfully,

Mike Hunua
