The response from NZ Police here is ambiguous. If you have not received a response to your OIA request through other means, then they are in breach of the law. You can lay a complaint with the Ombudsman here: http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz/make-...

The Ombudsman's guidelines on requests made online makes it clear that requests can be received via FYI, and it is not lawful for NZ Police to require that OIA requests be sent via other means before they will be processed: http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz/syste...
