Current Police Speed Enforcement policy
The request was successful.
Dear New Zealand Police,
I am a New Zealand citizen living in New Zealand. The response to this request will be used in Court proceedings in April 2015. As such, I request urgency under Section 12 (3) of the Act. I request an electronic response by way of email to this website. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.
The purpose of this request is to establish current practice, policy and procedure in regards to speed enforcement and the use of speed measuring devices by the New Zealand Police. While there is available online information supplied to various request under the act it has come to my knowledge that that information may not necessarily be current even if the date of receipt is within 2 years.
I was informed in court by a Police Instructor witness that there should be a 2007 version of DUT 244 as opposed to the already available 2001 version hence the request for the most current versions of the following.
Can you please provide the following current versions of Police manuals / General Instructions / Code of Operations
1. Speed enforcement manual
2. Traffic patrol techniques manual
3. The current version of DUT 244 Speed Detection Operators Module
4. Any policy, manual, code of operations or instructions in relation to the operation and use of traffic laser speed measurement devices.
From: SMITH, Jason
