Search and surveillance powers form an integral part of many law enforcement investigations. According to the New Zealand Police Annual Report, in the year 2014/2015, New Zealand Police exercised warrantless search powers on 7,048 occasions and obtained 122 surveillance device warrants. Over 4,000 people were charged with criminal offences in partial reliance on the evidence obtained through the exercise of those powers.
