Police response to bomb threat

Charlotte made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

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

From: Charlotte

Dear New Zealand Police,
Can you please advise what your procedures are when responding to a telephoned in bomb threat to a secondary school in NZ.
Is there a specialist team involved in checking and securing the property?
Is it normal practice for heavily armed police to be guarding the location at which there has been a bomb threat.
Is it usual practice that the police would also inform surrounding residential properties of the threat?
thank you
Yours faithfully,
C M Cotter

I'm surprised NZ Police didn't seem to consider releasing their "Improvised explosive devices and bomb incidents" Police Manual chapter to you.

If you'd like more information on Police's procedures around bomb threats, you might consider requesting that specific policy document.
