The officers did not answer his questions, but believe they had added them to their statements, which will come from part of the lawsuit against Tarrant.
The Australian white supremacist, 28, is currently being sent back to a prison with maximum security pending trial for the murder of 51 Muslim worshipers in the worst mass shooting in modern history of New Zealand.
On March 15, Tarrant reportedly stormed the Al Noor Mosque and the Islamic Center of Linwood before he shot and killed over 50 worshipers and wounded another 49.
The entire massacre was also streamed live on social media.
The police initially filed a single representative murder indictment against Tarrant but accidentally named someone who was still alive before later changing the indictment.

Tarrant denied 51 allegations of murder, 40 of attempted murder and one terrorist crime for its alleged role in the March 15 shooting.
The accusation of terror against him will be the first prosecution of its kind in New Zealand and some legal experts say that this could potentially lead to a complex trial.
He remains in prison for his trial, which is scheduled for May next year, but there is some speculation that the date could be changed.
During a hearing in August, accused shooter lawyers asked if the location for the trial could be changed in Auckland, where Tarrant is being held in a prison with maximum security, RNZ reported.
Judge Cameron Mander plans to hear arguments for the location change at the next hearing on October 3.
The court heard that mental health investigations had determined that Tarrant was suitable for trial.
& # 39; There is no problem regarding the ability of the accused to argue, advise and endure his trial. A fitness hearing is not required, & Judge Mander said.
