Police are needing to redeploy staff in the face of unprecedented circumstances as we respond to COVID-19. This will have a severe impact on our ability to respond to requests for information under the Official Information Act 1982 and Privacy Act 1993 in a timely fashion. Priority will be given to requests from media on matters of high public interest.
We appreciate this will be frustrating for some people but please know we are doing everything we can to keep our communities safe. When we resume business as usual, we will contact you to see whether you still require the requested information. Thank you for your understanding.
