Success rate of new pursuit policy

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mr J Stewart to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Mr J Stewart

Dear New Zealand Police,

Around December 2020 Police changed their pursuit policy.

My questions in relation to this are:

- For 2 years prior to the change, how many pursuits/fleeing driver incidents were there.

- Of these incidents, what percentage resulted in the driver being identified.

- Of these incidents, how many resulted in serious crashes.

- Since the change in policy, how many pursuit/fleeing driver incidents have there been.

- Of these incidents, what percentage resulted in the driver being identified.

- Of these incidents, how many resulted in serious crashes.

Yours faithfully,

Ashley Stewart

Dear Ministerial Services,

Thank you for the prompt reply.

The answer has raised a few more questions I'd like to seek some information for. Can a column be added showing the following:

- for each year, the percentage of fleeing driver incidents where a pursuit was initiated

- for each of those pursuits, how many were abandoned

- percentage of fleeing driver incidents where the police helicopter was used

Can the whole dataset please be pushed out to include from 2010 -2021. Looking for a reason for the declining amount of offenders identified, 58% - 35% is a pretty big drop.

I also seek clarification to one point. My initial question was seeking data of when the driver specifically was identified, the answer given talks about offenders. I just want to confirm offenders is in fact the driver and not other people that may have been in the car at the time.

Cheers,

Ashely
