Emergency Alert - Terrorist Attack

Aaron Tily made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Aaron Tily

Dear New Zealand Police,

Why at no point in the early hours of the shootings was there an emergency alert to all phones in Christchurch? I've heard of a number of people who hadn't heard anything and tried picking their kids from school only to be met with armed police.

The emergency alert system was created for things like this.

Yours faithfully,

Aaron Tily
