Diversion-Discharge without conviction

Steve hall made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

The request was successful.

From: Steve hall

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am a New Zealand citizen and currently reside in New Zealand, as required by s12(1) of the OIA 1982.

I would like to request the following information regarding the Diversion-Discharge without conviction scheme for first time offenders.

As the Diversion-Discharge without conviction scheme is a one time only for a first offence, what records remains to show that this has already been applied when arrested for further offences.

How do you ascertain if Diversion-Discharge without conviction has been previously used ?
Do you keep fingerprints ?
Do you keep DNA samples ?
What notes are kept ?
Does the offender still have a Police Record Number ?
What other information is retained regarding this offence and offender ?

If the offence is suitable for the clean slate act , what happens after this time expires ? what information is retained on this offence and offender ?

Yours faithfully,

Steve hall

Steve, did you ever get a response to this - perhaps outside the FYI system?

I have confirmed from the FYI mail logs that the original request was successfully delivered to the police email server.

No I didnt receive a reply, as of Friday I sent a message to the ombudsman to speed it up.
While it is not super time critical, i would have appreciated an answer sooner from NZ Police

Dear New Zealand Police,

Yet again I have not received any response to this, while I get a confirmation email each time the information requested is not replied

Can you please tell me how to receive the information asked for

I have forwArded this to the ombudsman and have a reference number and will follow up next week should I not receive my information

This should be a standard question and answer request and should not pose a large research undertaking and would have expected a reply before now

Yours faithfully,

Steve hall
