Police Communications

Kieran Geraghyt 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: Kieran Geraghyt

Dear New Zealand Police,
As per the FYI requirements, I am a New Zealand born citizen residing in New Zealand.
In Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch the police radios are encrypted, To prevent unauthorized monitoring.

I am a scanner enthusiast.
The implementation of the P25 Encryption means I can no longer scan the police.
As silly as this will sound.
How can one become Authorized to listen,
Can I apply as media?
Is there any other way please.
I find it very interesting to hear the eagle chopper directing ground units and hearing the victory when a K9 has been made after a long pursuit.
I am a very honest person and would never share any information that is transmitted over the radio.
My purposes are fully legal and I am only wanting to listen as a curious person and I have great interest in what goes on in my community.
I am also considering police as a future career.

Yours faithfully,

Kieran Geraghyt

Good afternoon, Kieran

 

Your request to apply to listen to the Police scanner is not one we can
process under the Official Information Act.  

 

I can tell you that than the encryption was brought in to prevent people
from listening in to Police communications and it would be unlikely in the
extreme for non-Police, or partner agencies, to be authorised to bypass
it.

 

Kind regards

 

Renée
