Dear Mr Brown, 
I am writing to you in response to your email sent to New Zealand Police on 9 
August 2021, which was made pursuant to the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) 
and specifically requested:  
The privacy impact assessment (or equivalent document, policy) for the 
NZ Police's use of video footage from the 
Community Cam has been developed independent of Police. The Community 
Cam website holds a register of household owners who have a CCTV camera on 
their property only.  Any footage uploaded is encrypted to maintain security.   
Should NZ Police contact any of the registered owners on the site, they must 
provide a warrant or case number to provide assurance to the homeowner that 
the request for any footage is in relation to evidential requirements. 
The site is now going through a thorough due diligence process to ensure that all 
security, privacy, legal and ethical factors are being reviewed and considered. 
A privacy impact assessment for the New Zealand Police use of video footage for 
Community Cam has not been prepared to date.  
Therefore, your request is refused under s 18(e) of the OIA in that the information 
you have requested does not exist. 
You have the right, under s 28 (3) of the OIA to ask the Ombudsman to review 
my decision if you are not satisfied with the way I have responded to your 
Yours sincerely
