Ability for Public to Provide Information via NZSIS website

Ability for Public to Provide Information via NZSIS website

18 August 2011

The New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) is introducing an online method for people to provide information. From today, people will be able to provide information to the NZSIS via its website, as an alternative to the freephone line (0800 SIS 224) which has been in operation since 2001.

“Our new online contribution form is a modern tool to gather useful information from willing members of the public, which is one of the roles of NZSIS,” Director of Security Dr Warren Tucker said today.

“The online form will be an accessible way for people to contribute information of national security that they believe may be of interest to the NZSIS,” he said.

“NZSIS is a civilian government agency which contributes to New Zealand’s safety and security. We gather and evaluate intelligence about current and emerging issues, events and threats relevant to New Zealand’s national security and global interests,” Dr Tucker said.

“We rely on many methods of gathering information, including engaging with communities and collecting and evaluating information provided by members of the public,” he said.

Similar such online functions are used by international partners and other government departments. By offering the online form, the NZSIS is keeping up with technology and making it easier for the public to give information in a secure and confidential manner.

The public contribution form is now on the NZSIS website www.nzsis.govt.nz.
