Storage and retention of TASER (tasercam) and body cam footage

Mr Cope made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mr Cope to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Mr Cope

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am a New Zealand Citizen.

I have consulted the Police manual on "Police filming and audio recording of operations and events" and have further questions regarding the storage and retention of TASER (tasercam) and body cam footage that is collected by the New Zealand Police.

Please can you clarify, with appropriate pages from the Police manuals and procedures and with copies of contracts from your suppliers, the following:

1. Retention of TASER (tasercam) and body cam footage
1a. Methods for ensuring compliance with the retention period, eg, what the standard retention period of footage is and how frequently a review of the archive is undertaken
1b. Who has access to the footage and how is that access audited

2. Storage of the above footage
2a. Jurisdiction within which the footage is stored
2b. If an external vendor stores the footage, which vendor, where are they located, and what is the contractual relationship between the New Zealand Police and vendor to protect the footage
2c. Is the footage retained for "machine learning", "artificial intelligence", or similar "training" purposes and by whom

3. A copy of the Digital imaging guidelines, as of 2015 located at: http://intranet/nzp/instructions/manuals...

4. A copy of the TASER (Electronic Control Devices) Police Manual chapter

Yours faithfully,

Mr Cope
