Casual Uniform Policy and Decision Process

David Zanetti 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: David Zanetti

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am a resident of Auckland, New Zealand satisfying the requirements of s12(1) of the Official Information Act.

In February 2019, the Police adopted a casual uniform for their presence at Waitangi. I request the following documentation relating to the casual uniform:

- Discussion internally and with any ministers relating to the decision to adopt a casual uniform for official police presence, including when such discussions and decisions were made
- Discussion internally and with any ministers on requirements for a casual uniform (such as specifications of what must be visible on such a uniform)
- Discussion internally and with any ministers on deviations from existing uniform requirements needed to adopt the casual uniform

Further, as the issue of an alternative uniform was a part of the dispute around the Auckland Pride Parade's position on Police at the parade, I further request:

- Any requirements, specifications, or expectations in written form of how Police would appear at the Auckland Pride Parade as requested by the parade organisers to the Police, for the 2019 Parade.

Yours faithfully,

David Zanetti

Dear David

 

I refer to your Official Information Act request of 7 February 2019 for
information related to Waitangi and Auckland Pride Parade uniform policy.

 

As this request is related to two different districts, it will be answered
separately and you can therefore expect two different responses for two
different workgroups.

 

If you have any issues or questions related to this please let me know.

 

Ngā mihi
