Dear Vauxhall Conservative Association Organising Secretary

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2010090004446

I write in connection with your request for information which was received
by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 25/09/2010. I note you seek
access to the following information:

* Can you let me have the date, time and venue for the next two Safer

Bishops Princes Oval Ferndale Clapham Town Clapham Common Thurlow Park
Can you also let me have the minutes of the last two meetings of these
panels?

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act), we have 20 working
days to respond to a request for information unless we are considering
whether the information requested is covered by one of the 'qualified
exemptions' (exemptions which must be tested against the public interest
before deciding whether they apply to the information in question).

Where we are considering the public interest test against the application
of relevant qualified exemptions, Section 17(2)(b) provides that we can
extend the 20 day deadline.

Section 17(2) provides:

2) Where-
a) in relation to any request for information, a public authority is, as
respects any information, relying on a claim-
i) that any provision of Part II which relates to the duty to confirm or
deny and is not specified in section 2(3) is relevant to the request, or
ii) that the information is exempt information only by virtue of a
provision not specified in section 2(3), and
b) at the time when the notice under subsection (1) is given to the
applicant, the public authority (or, in a case falling within section
66(3) or (4), the responsible authority) has not yet reached a decision as
to the application of subsection (1)(b) or (2)(b) of section 2,
the notice under subsection (1) must indicate that no decision as to the
application of that provision has yet been reached and must contain an
estimate of the date by which the authority expects that such a decision
will have been reached.

I am sorry to inform you that we have not been able to complete our
response to your request by the date originally stated, as we are
currently considering whether 'qualified exemptions' apply to the
information you have requested. As a result we will not be able to respond
within 20 working days.

For your information we are considering the following exemption:

Section 31 - Law Enforcement

I can now advise you that the amended date for a response is 16 November
2010.

May I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)'s handling of my FOI request 'Dates, Times and Venues of Lambeth Safer Neighbourhood Panal Meetings'.

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

Yours faithfully,

Vauxhall Conservative Association Organising Secretary

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2010110000219

I write to you in respect of your letter of complaint dated 1 November
2010 concerning:

Original FOI case number: 2010110000219.

Request for information dated 25 September 2010

* Can you let me have the date, time and venue for the next two Safer
Neighbourhood Panel Meetings for the following Wards in Lambeth?
* Bishops
* Princes
* Oval
* Ferndale
* Clapham Town
* Clapham Common
* Thurlow Park
*
* Can you also let me have the minutes of the last two meetings of these
panels?

DECISION

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has completed its review and has
decided that correct procedure was followed in regards to the handling of
your request for information.

REASON FOR DECISION

Your original request for information was received by the MPS on 25
September 2010. As the MPS is statutory required to respond to your
request under the Act within 20 working days, I calculate the deadline for
your request should have been 25 October 2010.

Public Authorities are permitted to legally extend the deadline by another
20 working days when considering the use of qualified exemptions, to the
information requested. Where the initial 20 working days is going to be
exceeded, public authorities must still serve a 'refusal notice' under
Section 17 of the Act within 20 days of a request. This notice must be
sent to the applicant even when it is relying on a qualified exemption and
has not yet completed the public interest test. The notice must state the
exemption being considered and include an estimate of the time in which
this decision will be made.

The MPS sent this legal 'refusal notice' to you on 19 October 2010, when
extending the deadline. This letter was sent to you within the first 20
working days for the date of your request. I therefore find the MPS has
not breached procure in regards to the handling of your pending FOIA
request.

Should you be dissatisfied with the final response the MPS send you in due
course in regards to this request, I will be able to handle your case as a
formal Internal Review.

COMPLAINT RIGHTS

If you are dissatisfied with this response please read the attached paper
entitled Complaint Rights which explains how to contact the Information
Commissioner with your complaint.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
the MPS.

Should you have any further inquiries concerning this matter, please
contact me quoting the reference number above.

Yours sincerely

S. Strong
Policy and Review Officer

14 Atodiad

Dear Conservative Association Organising Secretary,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2010090004446

I write in connection with your request for information which was received
by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 25/09/2010. I note you seek
access to the following information:

* Can you let me have the date, time and venue for the next two Safer
Neighbourhood Panel Meetings for the following Wards in Lambeth?

* Bishops
* Princes
* Oval
* Ferndale
* Clapham Town
* Clapham Common
* Thurlow Park

* Can you also let me have the minutes of the last two meetings of these
panels?

Following receipt of your request searches were conducted within the MPS
to locate information relevant to your request.

EXTENT OF SEARCHES TO LOCATE INFORMATION

To locate the information relevant to your request searches were conducted
at Lambeth Borough Police and the Metropolitan Police website.

RESULT OF SEARCHES

The searches located records relevant to your request.

DECISION

I have today decided to:

* Provide you with the relevant link to the information regarding the
dates, times and venues for the next two Safer Neighbourhood Panel
Meetings for the requested Wards.

* Partially disclose the last two minutes of the meetings of the panels
for the same wards subject to the deletion of information pursuant to
the provisions of section 40(2) and section 31(1) (a) and (b) of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000

This letter serves as a Refusal Notice under Section 17 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act). Please see the legal annex for the
sections of the Act that are referred to in this letter.

REASONS FOR DECISION

Before I explain the reasons for my decision I would like to inform you
that a Freedom of Information Act request is not a private transaction.
Both the request itself, and any information disclosed, are considered
suitable for open publication.

This is because, under Freedom of Information, any information disclosed
is released into the wider public domain, effectively to the world, not
just to one individual.

In accordance with guidance from the Information Commissioner's Office
(ICO) the MPS have recently created a "disclosure log" which shows both
the response and any information disclosed under the Act. The disclosure
log is available at the following link:
http://www.met.police.uk/foi/disclosure/...

The fact that any FOIA disclosure is made publicly available (on our
website and elsewhere) is taken into account when the potential harm
and/or public interest is considered.

Question 1

The information requested is already accessible by other means as it is
published by the MPS at the following link:
http://www.met.police.uk/teams/lambeth/i... you need to select the
relevant ward in order to see the next meeting dates.

Whenever the MPS refers an applicant to information that is already
published or accessible by other means we do so in accordance with Section
21 of the Act. The link above provides you with the requested information
(and more) however, the use of Section 21 is technically a refusal as we
are providing you with details of where to obtain the information not
providing the information itself.

Question 2

The requested minutes contain information that is not suitable for public
disclosure. This information includes personal data - such as names,
addresses and other identifiers - as well as information which, if
disclosed would prejudice our ability to enforce the law. Any such data
may be exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section 40(2) Personal Data,
and Section 31(1)(a)&(b) Law Enforcement.

Personal Data - Section 40(2)

This exemption is class-based and absolute therefore I am not required to
demonstrate the prejudice that would or would be likely to be caused from
disclosure nor am I required to consider the level of public interest.
However I will explain why this exemption has been applied.

Information that would identify or could assist to the identification of
individuals is exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section 40(2) of the
Act. In this instance providing the names of non police individuals
attending the meetings or discussed at the meetings would allow for their
identification. Details of specific incidents, victims, suspects,
witnesses and/or informants would also assist in the identification of
third parties.

Furthermore, some of this data relates to criminal investigations and is
therefore considered sensitive personal data as defined by Section 2(g) &
(h) of the Data Protection Act. Sensitive personal data is afforded
further safeguards from disclosure.

In order for the exemption provided under Section 40(2) to be engaged,
disclosure of the requested information must satisfy either the first or
second condition as defined by subsections 3 and 4.

Having reviewed the requested data I have decided that disclosure of this
information would breach principle one of the Data Protection Act, fair
and lawful processing. To determine whether or not the disclosure would
be fair and lawful I have considered the conditions for processing
personal data which are defined by Schedule 2 of the Data Protection Act.
There are two conditions that are relevant to this request. Condition 1
relates to the consent of the data subject and condition 6 relates to
legitimate interests. I do not believe that the data subjects (in this
instance any individual attending the meeting or described within the
minutes) would agree to public disclosure of their personal information.
My conclusion therefore is that disclosure would not be fair or lawful.

I have applied the exemption provided under Section 40(2) of the Freedom
of Information Act to this information as the first condition, defined in
subsection 3(a)(i) of Section 40 has been satisfied. A link to the Data
Protection Act is available in the legal annex.

Law Enforcement - Section 31(1)(a)&(b)

This exemption is both prejudice based and qualified therefore I am
required to provide you with a prejudice test outlining the harm I have
identified and consider the balance of Public Interest.

Prejudice Test

In considering whether or not the information should be fully disclosed, I
have considered the potential harm that could be caused by disclosure.

The text redacted under Section 31(1)(a)&(b) contains information which,
if released, would be likely to prejudice the ability of the MPS to
prevent/detect crime or to apprehend/prosecute offenders.

To provide information that could be used to identify areas of potential
criminal activity may cause prejudice the individual victims of these
crimes, the general community and to the MPS itself.

For example if we were to publicly disclose information which highlights
an area susceptible to criminal damage (such as graffiti) we would be
confirming which locations an offender would be less likely to be
apprehended. This would cause harm to the individual owner of the
property who would become a victim of crime.

An increase in criminal damage and other offences would have a negative
effect on the local community by increasing the fear of crime and if the
offender is not apprehended prejudice is caused to the relationships
between the community the police and our partners.

Ultimately, such a disclosure would cause prejudice to the MPS not only
due to the reasons specified above but also because it would cause us to
allocate resources to tackle the issue. Our resources are finite and
therefore any reallocation would detract from other aspects of our work.

This prejudice test has highlighted only a small part of the overall
prejudice that was identified while reviewing the minutes however many of
the issues identified would result in the same or similar harm if they
were to be disclosed.

For example there is obvious harm where the discussions center on known
locations for drug dealing and our plans to tackle these areas and
offenders.

Any release of information that would be likely to prejudice a police
services' ability to prevent and/or detect crime could only be viewed as
being harmful to members of the public.

Public interest considerations favouring disclosure

Transparency is one of the core principles of the Freedom of Information
Act, as the Act has created the right to know how a public authority
functions and the decisions it takes. Full disclosure of the requested
documents would assist in meeting the public interest in transparency and
accountability.

Disclosure of accurate information regarding the work and progress of our
safer neighbourhood teams would contribute to greater public awareness and
allow for informed debate around the use of police resources, partnership
involvement and the relevance of each of the ward priorities.

Public interest considerations favouring non-disclosure

Full disclosure of the requested minutes would reveal operations and
initiatives that are planned within the wards. Disclosure of such
information could prove detrimental to the MPS by revealing areas in which
we have intelligence of criminal activity.

Specifically such a disclosure would prejudice our ability to apprehend an
offender. This prejudice would be caused because the disclosure would
allow individuals with criminal intent to take steps to avoid
apprehension. As a result it would be likely that further crimes are
committed putting the public at an enhanced risk of becoming a victim of
crime.

Prejudice could also be caused to our work in crime prevention as the full
disclosure would highlight areas which are of concern to the MPS, our
partners or other contributors at these meetings (including members of the
public). For example the minutes contain information that identifies
locations that are susceptible to crime due to poor lighting or limited
security.

More worrying still is the disclosure of information which - while not
necessarily identifying an individual - confirms that a vulnerable person
or family live in a particular building, estate or street. Disclosure of
such information may lead to offences, including but not limited to
antisocial behaviour, being committed against individuals misidentified
from these documents.

The issues I have highlighted here relate to the effectiveness of the MPS.
Any disclosure that would have a negative impact on our core functions
would clearly not be in the best interests of the public.

Balancing Test

On weighing up the competing interests, I find the strongest consideration
favouring disclosure is transparency. I find the strongest consideration
favouring non-disclosure is the impact on the effectiveness of the MPS.

Having balanced the considerations outlined above, I have decided that the
benefit that would result from the information being disclosed does not
outweigh the prejudice that could be caused by the full disclosure. In
reaching this decision I have taken into account the fact that the
positive public interest identified can be met by the substantial
disclosure that has been approved and is attached.

Please find attached copies of the requested information.
