Dear New Zealand Police,

Dear Sir.
I refer to numerous requests for information under the Official Information Act that were lodged to the NZ Police also the Commissioner of the NZ Police under the Official Information Act 1982 on the following dates:

14th May 2016
09th February 2017
08th March 2017
05th May 2017

Could I remind you under the Official Information Act 1982 it is stated a decision be made and communicated on an official information request no later than 20 working days on which the request was received.

As no extension of this time limit has been made from the Police and no communication received regarding such information requested from any the above dates I once again formally request you communicate with me as a priority.

Should for any reason the NZ Police have misplaced the applications regarding the information requested once again I repeat the information sought.

1/
Was the New Zealand Police notified regarding information from the Department of Education District Child Welfare Office in Auckland in early January 1961 regarding evidence of a Handyman/relief Housemaster employee employed at Mt.Wellington Residential School suspected of improprieties towards male/s pupils attending Mt Wellington Residential School.?
2/
Did Department of Education District Child Welfare Office in Auckland New Zealand provide the New Zealand Police of the suspected employees name along with details of suspected improprieties allegory committed by the suspect in question?
3/
Were any investigations undertaken within the New Zealand Police into the Department of Education District Child Welfare Office request in locating a missing employee suspected of committing improprieties against pupils at Mt Wellington Residential School?
Also I refer to a letter from the Ombudsman Peter Boshier dated 29th August 2017 reminding the NZ Police of their obligations under the Official Information Act 1982 was sent to the NZ Police also to the Minister of Police of the failures to meet the requirements imposed by the OIA.

Yours Sincerely
