Police employees active in ethic an community organizations

Bill 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: Bill

Dear New Zealand Police,

Are any members of the New Zealand Police, working in any capacity, active in in any of the New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils, specifically, the Christchurch Multicultural Council, in an professional or personal basis; now and any time over the past 10 years.

What is the Police's policy on such involvement - for example, are such activities required to be reported to the New Zealand Police?

Yours faithfully,

Bill

Please note that the "ethic" in the subject title should be "ethnic". It a was a typo. Apologies. Mr Robertson.

Are you suggesting by requesting that I contact you at a Police email address that you will not be replying publicly to the above OIA request?

You are obligated to reply, and publicly, given that my request has been submitted via FYI. Please respond as to the meaning and intention of your annotation; here, on FYI.

Regards,

Bill

It is a perfectly reasonable request to make. I don't understand why it is at all necessary to contact the Police regarding this matter via a private email address.

Ministers of Police have had close associations with representatives from ethnic community leaders or representatives or otherwise for many years:

Please respond as to if and when you will be replying to my request publicly on FYI.

Bill

Bill,

Annotations such as this one (and yours above) do not get sent to the authority - they are only visible on the FYI website. To send a reply email to Police you need to click "Write a reply" below.

Police have asked you to email another address (their Ministerial Services team), however you do not need to do that. The OIA request has been received by Police and legally they must handle it. It is their job to pass it to pass it to the right team internally, not yours. I recommend writing a reply to remind them of this and that the due date is still November 14.
