Delivered

Dear NSW Police Force,

On 1st Jun 2020, an aboriginal boy, approximately 16 years of age was arrested by police in Surry Hills.

There were two officers involved in the arrest. A male officer and a female officer. The arrest was filmed, and has been the subject of significant criticism. The arrest has been viewed 135.6k times on Twitter as of the time of this email.

I am seeking the following details under FOI:
- The arrest report/charge sheet
- The name of the officer who swept the legs out from under the person being arrested in the video

I ask that any applicable FOI fee be waived as this is a public interest request. I also ask that FOI fees be waived on the ground of financial hardship.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Stanhope

Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.

Please find attached the ‘Formal Access’ application form for completion.
You should follow all instructions on the form, include as much

Acceptable forms of proof of identity include any one of the following: -
