Dear National Police Chiefs' Council,

Could I please request any and all information you hold on the national police uniform (or what name it now holds) and whether the Police in England and Wales have a minimum Personal Safety Equipment uniform which each officer requires including footwear. If possible with guidance as to compliance with Health and Safety legislation and the HSE Executive.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Metcalf

National Police Chiefs' Council

Good morning

Unfortunately, I am unable to determine what information you are seeking as your request is asking for 'any and all' information held on the national police uniform.

S8(C) of the Act states that a request must identify a precise record.

In wishing to assist you, I have re-worded your request, and ask that you confirm that you are content with me to progress with your request and initiate the retrieval process, or alternatively, provide an alternative request.

I have reworded your request as:

1. Please provide a record which details the national police uniform. For example, any national guidelines on what Police Officers should wear on duty.

2. Please provide a record which confirms whether the Police in England and Wales have a minimum Personal Safety Equipment uniform which each officer is required to wear, to include footwear, and if possible, with guidance as to compliance with Health and Safety legislation and the HSE Executive.

If you are content with the re-wording of your request, please reply to this email.

No inferences can made as to whether information is or is not held. Your request is on hold presently, and I will assume you are happy to withdraw your FOI request if I have not received confirmation or clarification by 13/07/2018.

With kind regards.

Sherry

Dear National Police Chiefs' Council, Dear Sherry,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE NUMBER: 000196/18

A Freedom of Information request has been received by the NPCC on 12/11/2018.

The NPCC is not yet a designated body covered by the terms of the Freedom of Information legislation. Following the dissolution of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), designation under the Freedom of Information Act did not automatically transfer across to the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).

For these reasons it is important that you clearly understand that not being bound by the legislation means that the NPCC cannot apply exemptions to disclosure, engage the fees regulations and there is no recourse from the applicant’s perspective to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

NPCC Acknowledgement:

It is the intention of the NPCC to comply with the spirit of the legislation and I hope to be in a position to respond to your within the statutory timescale of 20 working days subject to the provisions of the Act.

In the unlikely event that the NPCC is unable to meet the 20 working day deadline, you will be informed as soon as possible and given a revised time-scale for response.

Kind regards.

Sherry
