Auckland Transport does not supply CCTV footage directly to members of the public due to
reasons of privacy.
Your request is therefore declined under section 7(2)(a) of LGOIMA (Local Government
Official Information and Meetings Act) as withholding the information is necessary to protect
the privacy of natural persons.
However, where footage of a specific incident or alleged crime is available, Auckland
Transport provides footage to New Zealand Police upon receipt of a request from them. The
footage relating to this incident has been saved. Therefore, we recommend that you contact
the NZ Police about this matter, and confirm that CCTV data is available for this period. If
you provide them our case number (CAS-841814-J1C5K5)
that should assist them in
processing the case.
We trust the information has addressed the matters raised however, should you believe that
we have not responded appropriately to your request, you have the right in accordance with
section 27(3) of the LGOIMA to make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman to seek
an investigation and review in regard to this matter.
