New Zealand police are looking into the actions of internet giant Google.

The Privacy Commissioner has asked the police to investigate Google's recent gathering of personal wireless internet data during its street view operation.

The commission and the police have recently met to discuss Google's possible breach of the Crimes Act after concerns about reports it collected WiFi information while photographing houses and streets for its mapping service.

Google has admited collecting WiFi data in more than thirty countries.
