Dear South Yorkshire Police,

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

We write to request an internal review of South Yorkshire Police's handling of the FOI request titled 'FOIs and SAR Volumes'.

Your clerk, Jane Adamson, appears to be ignorant as to what constitutes a valid request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, namely that she has requested a name from us.

As Calderdale Against Corruption is a not-for-profit organisation, our name is, self-evidently, "Calderdale Against Corruption", just like when The Guardian newspaper makes FOI requests under their brand name.

We have ICO complaints upheld for refusing to disclose information using the same tactic employed by Jane, so we suggest that you look at updating the training given to Ms Adamson and other staff who handle FOI requests, if only to avoid embarrassing mistakes like this one.

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

Yours faithfully,

Calderdale Against Corruption

Dear Jane Adamson,

We would like to take the opportunity to refer you to the ICO's guidance on valid requests, specifically paying attention to the fact that a requester can be an organisation, for which the "real name" of the requester is the name of the organisation.

"Remember that a request can be made in the name of an organisation" (see the following link under paragraph 2 of the "What makes a request valid?" section)

https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gui...

As such, we expect our request to be processed without any further delay or excuse.

Yours sincerely,

Calderdale Against Corruption

Thanks for that information. It just goes to show that certain police employers are routinely in breach of their legal obligations, even when they are subject to intervention from the ICO.

Interestingly, the forces which appear to have the greatest delays in providing responses are the forces which appear to be the most complained about, and the most corrupt.

It is almost as if they have something to hide, isn't it?

Dear Ms Holmes,

Thank you for confirming our Internal Review has been upheld.

We notice that you state that the "FOI team consists of 2 members of staff", yet in your response to our original FOI request you state that the FOI team consists of 6 people, and, in fact, hasn't consisted of just 2 people at any point during the past 5 years.

Can you explain the discrepancy between your official responses? We are sure that 6 members of staff could quite easily manage less than 150 requests per month as we know of other organisations which provide more in-depth information and manage to handle more requests per month with less staff.

We look forward to your explanation of the discrepancy.

Yours sincerely,

Calderdale Against Corruption
