Medal policy and mounting

john luke made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: john luke

Dear New Zealand Police,

I would Iike to request any internal policy or manual documents in relation to medal wearing. Also does nz police has approved medal mounting company list, if so, may I request to view your list? Who pay for the cost of medal mounting?

Yours faithfully,

john luke

I expect the Police Manual chapter "Ceremonial - Part 01 Orders Decorations and Medals" will fall within the scope of your request.

There are nine chapters within the "Ceremonial" section of the Police Manual, but as far as I'm aware only the "Flag flying" chapter has been released publicly before. You can find a list of Police Manual chapters at https://policepolicy.nz

A response to this request was due no later than yesterday. I recommend you complain to the Ombudsman about this unlawful delay.

Complaining about unlawful delays helps ensure the Ombudsman is aware of the scale of the problem, as well as putting pressure on Police to improve their OIA practices. If you complain about this unlawful delay, it might mean other OIA requests handled by Police will receive more timely responses than they would have otherwise.

If it's useful, I have a template I use for complaining about unlawful delays like this one that you'd be welcome to use: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ad2Z...
