There was a delivery error or similar, which needs fixing by the Right To Know team.

Dear NSW Police Force,

I make this informal request for information under GIPA 2009, and that this is in the public's interest.

1.Who (if anyone) in the NSW Police Force, has the authority and the means to have routes on SatNav altered, omitted or added?

I raise this concern regarding rural roads, where there maybe increased awareness and use because of SatNav - and the critical need for rural residents who are more isolated physically and elderly, needing services (emergency and courier, etc) to readily locate them commonly through SatNav.

2. What check and balances are in place to ensure NSW Police Officers are using their position and recommendations impartially and integrity, with regards to what SatNav data, and to ensure no community member is disadvantaged?

Yours faithfully,

Ms Brogan

Hello Patsy,

In order to make a request for NSW Police Force information, an applicant
is required to submit a completed 'Formal Access' application under the
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
information and guidance as possible about the information you require and
sign the form before submitting it.

When seeking access to personal information, an applicant must provide a
certified copy of their proof of identity. Certified means that the proof
of identity must be verified (i.e. signed and dated) by an authorised
person (Justice of the Peace, Doctor, Pharmacist, Legal Practitioner,
Postmaster – Australia Post).

Acceptable forms of proof of identity include any one of the following: -
an Australian Driver’s Licence including a photograph, signature and
current address; a current Australian passport or other proof of signature
and current address details (such as a Government issued identity card or
Government issued proof of age card).

Each ‘Formal Access’ application submitted must be accompanied by an
application fee of $30.00. This fee can be paid by credit card, cheque or
money order.  Cheques and money orders should be made payable to ‘NSW
Police’.

If your application form is submitted via email, we can only accept a
credit card authority form. Alternatively, if you submit your application
through the post, all payment methods can be accepted.

If you are applying for someone else's information, please be aware that
it is unlikely to be released to you unless you have obtained a dated and
signed authority, authorising specifically the release of that particular
information.

The NSW Police Force has up to twenty (20) working days under the Act
(subject to any extension allowed for under the Act) to deal with an
application.  If any extension of time is required to deal with an
application, we will let the applicant know in writing.

Please e-mail the completed forms (formal access application and credit
card authority form) to the NSW Police Force External Information Access
Unit (EIAU) at: [NSW Police Force request email].

Alternatively, you can post the forms and your payment to the postal
address listed on the application form.

Dear #GIPAAPP,

Does the NSW Police Force consider Informal Request made in accordance to GIPA as dismissable?
