Police implementing Kiwiblog April Fool’s Post

The Herald reports:

People who arrive at the border will receive a call from welfare to make sure they’re okay, Bush said.

But now, those people will be texted by the Police asking if they consent to be monitored via their cell phone.

This was being worked through with the Privacy Commissioner, Bush said.

Bush said in the last 24 hours, the Police have been in contact with 4000 people in relation to the monitoring.

On 1 April I do an April Fool’s post announcing the Government will be tracking people via their cellphones to ensure they are where they are meant to be.

On 2 April the Police announce they have started to do that.

Somewhat scary when satire becomes reality!
