Hi Whangārei,

Three tools have been trialled or used by Police to search publicly available information during investigations, but they will not reveal which ones.

Some of these have sparked controversy overseas, including one tool that was used to track Black Lives Matter protesters or monitor electronic chatter.

Police Commissioner Andrew Coster has defended using these digital tools, and faced criticism for it, with digital rights groups worried online surveillance is escalating.

Auckland technologist Andrew Chen has argued police need to more transparent when deploying a tool and its justification.

Police said the 2020 stocktake was a "snapshot" only and was only revealing what it could to build public confidence.

Nix minute a little car pulls up out jumps a large Maori man offering to help he stood in the water and directed me forward showing where the path was. Made my day I love this stuff lots of good people out there.
And before anybody jumps on me I also identify as Maori a descendant of the Ngati Raukawa tribe.

Set in the small Welsh seaside village of Llareggub (read it backwards), "Under Milk Wood" follows the activities of a group of eccentric (and sometimes bawdy) villagers over a 24-hour period. Two narrators are used to paint the pictures of the village and introduce the 70 characters. This production uses the definitive radio script with its magical use of the English language.

Dates and prices attached.
