Police involvement with a particular bus incident

Hugh Davenport made this Official Information request to Wellington Regional Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington Regional Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Hugh Davenport

Dear Wellington Regional Council,

Attention Margaret Meek

Sorry, another follow up on https://fyi.org.nz/request/9187-correspo... about that bus vs cyclist from Sept last year, in regards to the Police involvement. This is currently with the IPCA.

I know that on several occasions that GWRC have said that Police have not been involved with either Metlink or the bus operator. I'm just trying to clear confusion around this situation, because the Police are sticking to their guns that they were in contact. I'm sure you can see my predicament here, either GWRC has given the wrong information, or the Police have given the wrong information.

Some key contact points to narrow it down, from the Police report (I can forward that to you if you like).

Police spoke to the service delivery manager in relation to this incident on the 01/11/2018.

There was also the phone call I received on 18th September 2018 from a "Gerald" from the Police who said they spoke with Metlink who will pass it onto the driver manager who will pass it onto the driver involved. Again I can forward you a copy of this voice mail message.

Date: 17th September 2018
Time: from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Route number 7 - Kingston
Approximate location at 7pm: bus stop 7714, Brooklyn road by Nairn street (across road from the Renouf Tennis Centre)

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
