Dear North Wales Police,

I wish to make a Freedom of Information request to your police force. The request regards whether, or not, your force employs the use of ethnic monitoring in relation to Gypsies and Irish Travellers. With regards to this, I would like to ask three questions:

Are Gypsies and Irish Travellers monitored as standard policy in your police force?
If not, please explain why your police force does or does not monitor Gypsies and Irish Travellers?

How many police officers are self declared either as Romany Gypsy or Irish Traveller in your force?

I would greatly appreciate it if you could send your reply to us via email; Anthony Howarth, The Traveller Movement. [email address]

Yours faithfully,

Anthony Howarth
