Following the protest on and around Parliament grounds in Wellington during February and March 2022, IPCA as the oversight body have established a project team to undertake an independent investigation and review of police actions.

In summary the scope of work for the project team includes providing the public, Police, and other key stakeholders with an independent assessment of the information Police had, the decisions Police took, the tactics used, and whether the approach taken to policing the Protest as it evolved was lawful, proportionate, and appropriate

The Intelligence and Insights Analyst will look at the Police management of intelligence as it related to the protest, including consideration of the intelligence available to Police, the sufficiency of that intelligence, and how it was assessed and informed decision making prior to and throughout the course of the Protest.

The Parliament Protest Project delivers its outcomes through different workstreams.  Throughout the course of the project, the Intelligence and Insights Analyst may also support other analysis work required across the project workstreams, providing analysis and reporting from a multitude of data sources in the review of both individual complaints and the broader thematic review.
