National Gang List- process for initial attribution of individuals to a gang

Andrew Li made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Andrew Li to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Andrew Li

Dear New Zealand Police,

On review of the NZ Gang Intelligence Centre Approved Information Sharing Agreement referenced in a response to a previous request I made, I recognize I may have been insufficiently specific in my prior request.

The Information Sharing Agreement specifies that information on 'Gang Associations' relating to an individual may be provided by all associated agencies to the GIC*. In order to further public understanding of what might cause an individual to be 'added to the list' so to speak, I am requesting:
1) Any internal policy or guidelines regarding what the process by which an individual would be 'added to the list' as a gang member or associate, the corroboration required to take this action, and any differences in how this process would be followed, based on the reporting agency or other circumstances- for example, one expects that there would be a different process for handling a report by a police officer who arrests a gang member as they commit an assault in the course of a gang-related fight, to an email from an ACC case manager or IRD auditor suggesting that a person may be involved in a gang.
2) Summary statistics (count by agency by year, or count by agency if this is not available) on which agencies have caused individuals to be initially 'added to the list', but ONLY IF this is:
2a) Already produced as part of the GIC work product
or 2b) Readily producible from a report run against the GIC database

Yours faithfully,
Andrew

* or vice versa, but this is not relevant to my request.

I refer to your request of 16 June 2022 for the following information:

The Information Sharing Agreement specifies that information on 'Gang Associations' relating to an individual may be provided by all associated agencies to the GIC*. In order to further public understanding of what might cause an individual to be 'added to the list' so to speak, I am requesting:
1) Any internal policy or guidelines regarding what the process by which an individual would be 'added to the list' as a gang member or associate, the corroboration required to take this action, and any differences in how this process would be followed, based on the reporting agency or other circumstances- for example, one expects that there would be a different process for handling a report by a police officer who arrests a gang member as they commit an assault in the course of a gang-related fight, to an email from an ACC case manager or IRD auditor suggesting that a person may be involved in a gang.

I have been asked to advise you that Police requires an extension of time in which to respond to your request, pursuant to section 15A(1) of the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). Specifically, section 15A(1)(b), consultations necessary to make a decision on the request are such that a proper response to the request cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit.

Police requires until 29 July 2022 to provide a substantive response to your request. We are endeavouring to provide this to you as soon as possible.

You have the right, under section 28(3) of the OIA, to make a complaint to an Ombudsman about this extension.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this decision, please feel free to contact [email address].
