Traffic Crash Report
The request was successful.
From: Joshua Rogers
Dear New Zealand Police,
I am writing to request the Traffic Crash Report, and any associated photos, for the crash involving a Police vehicle and a member of the public in Hamilton on 07/04/2021.
I'll note, this was previously requested under an OIA and denied due to being under investigation and assigned to a senior officer and under Section 6(c) - "to prejudice the maintenance of the law, including the prevention, investigation, and detection of offences, and the right to a fair trial"
Granted this has been approximately 9-10 months since this accident occurred, it would be reasonable to assume the investigation process has been completed. Would you also be able to include the investigation outcome with the TCR and photos?
For Reference see: https://fyi.org.nz/request/15128-traffic...
I can confirm I am a New Zealand Citizen and currently reside in New Zealand.
