Dress Code

Josh 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: Josh

Dear New Zealand Police,

I was looking into joining the police force, however I have dreadlocks.
They can be tied back and would not interfere at all whilst equipping a hat.

Is there a no dreadlocks rule?

Yours faithfully,

Josh.
