Dear Nottingham City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Nottingham City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Community Protection Officer Powers'.

I am dissatisfied with the response to my question as to whether Community Protection Officers have the power to demand name and address.

Your response was "If someone is committing Anti-Social behaviour then CPO’s have the power to ask for
the offenders details under The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014"

I have considered Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and I do not see how you can claim that Community Protection Officers or others employed by a council can claim a "power" to demand name and address and the Act does not state a penalty for refusing to give those details.

Please clarify if there is a power to demand name and address, where that power is derived from and the penalty for non compliance. It seems to me that in order to issue a notice, a Community Protection Officer may only request details and has no power to enforce it.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Simon Hoyle
