I am required by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to handle all requests in a manner that is blind
to the identity of the requestor. Any information released in response to a request is regarded as

force. No information is held regarding operational police matters.
Please redirect your request to Hertfordshire Constabulary for any information they may hold on this
subject. This can be done via the email email@example.com.
