    Will the freedom of information act allow you to attain your file?

    Did they use it when they visited Jan Molenaar in 2009? I would assume they didn’t, or it wasn’t up and running then.

    Was pulled over for a traffic infringement around 5-6 years ago. My ticket was generated by an EFTPOS looking device that the officer had. Intrigued, I asked if I could see it and he showed me the display briefly - was surprised to see my firearm licence photo there.

    I can certainly understand police perspective on why that information would be useful, rather than for <insert dramatic music>, sinister purposes.

    They are selective in what they do with the information.
    Years ago went to Auckland with a mate to pick up some lead for his yacht he was building.
    Went to Reloaders to buy a rifle and found I had forgotten my licence.
    I said thats no problem will shoot down to the cop shop and get them to verify I have a licence.
    They said good luck the sergeant is anti guns.
    Sure enough they were right.
    Had a bit of a discussion with him.
    Said to him you have enough info to verify who I am.
    If I had an accident you would have my drivers licence ,truck details etc.
    But no go even though I am pretty sure the rules allowed it.
    Definitely not as helpful as the Tokoroa cops.

    its nothing new if you've ever had a scanner and listened to the police on it they know more than you think they know about you so keep in mind when they question you they already know the answer once you give a wrong answer they push further

    "Since it became operational in 2001, there have been several instances of police misusing the system."

    "Massey University security studies lecturer Rhys Ball, a former NZ Security Intelligence Service intelligence officer, said an issue with the system was its sheer volume of material, and whether police were sufficiently resourced to manage and use the intelligence in a timely way.

    "As they say, too much data is akin to pouring a cup of water with a fire hose."

    Security analyst Paul Buchanan said the system raised privacy issues."

    And cops like that are the reason good cops get un deserved flak.

    privacy act-you can request the info, most likely they will give you fark all except your micro dossier, 1 page and your firearms licencing notes/ application etc, thats not it all though
    '
    rewrite and ask that they release your ALL your data they hold, its alot more than they will fob you off with in the first reply

    and if not then a complaint to the privacy commission gets the fire up em,


    SIS and GCSB dont have to release your info and will neither confirm nor deny the existence of any such file
