From: Hugh Davenport

Dear New Zealand Police,

I would like to request the case file and all additional information for an incident reported by myself at around 2pm on the 5th December at the Wellington Central Police Station. The incident reported was a bus running a red light while pedestrians were crossing, and a video was included. I'm unsure of any case number as no acknowledgement was ever sent.

The details of the bus was:

Time: 11am ish, 4th December 2018
Location: Willis St by Chews Lane, travelling north.
Bus number: unknown, route 52, rego unknown.

The video link provided was https://downloads.thebusfactor.party/hig...

Note as my personal details are likely within some files. Instead of withholding the entire file, can these please be redacted of personal information.

For the purposes of s12(1) of the Official Information Act, I reside in Wellington, New Zealand.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport

Dear New Zealand Police,

I recieved a physical letter about this case. I'm unsure whether it was to do with this OIA, or just to do with the case as I reported it. If it is the former, I request that you use the @requests.fyi.org.nz email address in future.

If it is the latter, to save you looking up records, the case number is 181206/3018

Yours faithfully,

I refer to your correspondence dated 10/12/2018 in which you requested
"Police report which relates to an incident (no file or event number
given) which occurred 4/12/2018 at approximately 1100hrs on Willis St, Te
Aro, Wellington in the northbound lane and involved a No. 52 Newlands Bus

I have considered your request under the Official Information Act 1982. On
this occasion I refer to Section 18(e) - the information requested does
not exist or cannot be found.
 
I have searched police records for the day and records of reports
submitted by yourself, and no record can be found relating to this
incident.

If you are not satisfied with my response to your request you have the
right to complain to the Office of the Ombudsman and seek an investigation
and review of my decision.
