Tactical Options Reporting Data January-June 2018

Mark Hanna made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Police, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mark Hanna

Tēnā koe,

On three previous occasions (ref 16/11336, 16/7758/11, and IR-01-18-5190), NZ Police has released tactical options reporting (TOR) data under the Official Information Act for 6 month periods between 1 July 2016 and 31 December 2017.

I would like to request some more recent tactical options reporting data.

Please release the following information:

1. TOR data for the 1 January - 30 June 2018 reporting period, in the same format as was released for the July-December 2017 reporting period (ref IR-01-18-5190).

2. The number, and percentage, of the total set of TOR events in this period that have completed the review process. For example, in the data for July-December 2017 released in August 2018 it was reported that there were 2,402 completed TOR events in the TOR database, which amounted to 93% of all TOR events in the TOR database during that period.

3. If possible, please specify for each event whether or not it has completed the review process. I understand that NZ Police has produced some recoded fields in previous releases, but I’m not sure if this particular information can be easily extracted. If it would make the request significantly more difficult or time-consuming, I would be happy for this part to be excluded.

Please also explain any relevant caveats that should be kept in mind when analysing this information.

Please provide all information, including the response letter, in an accessible, searchable format. Please provide the TOR data in a machine-readable format such as CSV or XSLX. I’d be happy if the XSLX format that has been used to release this data previously is used again.

If any part of my request is unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If any of the information that I have requested is unavailable or would be difficult to retrieve, but similar information might be readily available, I would be happy to discuss altering or refining my request.

Nāku, nā,
Mark Hanna
