ATTN: Whanganui Area Inspector

Oliver 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: Oliver

Dear Sir,

I live in Taihape. It is easier and cheaper to obtain P than weed.

I am concerned that you're district's strategy in tackling the harm that is caused to our communities by drugs is a little disordered.

I officially ask that you tell me the basic principle guiding your districts police strategy on drugs in our communities.

Many New Zealander's and members of my community acknowledge a significant difference between marijuana and P. I represent a growing concern within our community that NZ Police within our district have failed to make a distinction between different drugs. Applause for busting all our tinny houses but what is your strategy for destroying the P houses? With all respect.

Yours faithfully,

Oliver Sanderson.
