Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above reference
14761.

Under the Freedom of Information Act we are required to reply within 20
working days.  The Act does not specify a limit to the number of
information requests a public authority may receive or the number of
requests or questions an applicant may submit.  However, there are
exemptions in the Act that can apply and these include where the cost of
complying with the request would extend beyond the reasonable cost limit,
(currently 18 hours or £450), or if the request is otherwise manifestly
unreasonable in its scope or nature. 

 

Requests that ask a great many questions, or a number of detailed requests
submitted at the same time, may make it necessary for Essex Police to
refuse the requests wholly or in part. The exemption at section 14 may be
engaged if the burden on the authority is increased through multiple
requests on differing subjects.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has responsibility for
providing oversight and guidance for the legislation and they have
produced advice for applicants on submitting effective requests.  Further
information can be found on the Commissioner’s website at

Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above
reference. As this FOI request is relating to operational policing this
has been forwarded from the PFCC to Essex Police.

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section
1(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held.  The second duty at Section 1(1)(b) is to disclose
information that has been confirmed as being held.  Where exemptions are
relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with
a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in
question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the
exemption applies.

 

In respect of your enquiry:

 

On 9th August M11/Loughton area there was an accident around afternoon
between 13:00 and 16:00 there was a long stretch of traffic.

 

Please kindly provide me

1. the time of the incident reported.

motorway entrance to M11 northbound.

3. CCTV of vehicles using hard shoulder and crossing verge hatching a to

Having completed enquiries within Essex Police and in respect of Section
1(1)(a), Essex Police does hold some information relating to your request.
Under Section 1(1)(b) the following link provides further details.

 

[1]https://www.essex.police.uk/news/essex/n...

 

No further information will be provided by virtue of Section 30, however,
you may wish to contact Highway Agency regarding CCTV footages.

 

Section 30 - Investigations and proceedings conducted by public
authorities

 

Factors favouring complying with Section 1(1)(a)

To disclose information relevant to this request would lead to a better
informed public demonstrating that Essex Police appropriately investigates
and responds to investigations. It may encourage individuals to provide
intelligence in order to assist investigations and reduce crime. There is
a public interest in the community being made aware of all the facts
relating to this area of policing in order to ensure complete openness and
transparency.

 

The public are also entitled to know how public funds are spent,
particularly in the current economic climate.

 

Factors against complying with Section 1(1)(a)

Modern-day policing is intelligence led and as stated within the harm,
Essex Police share information with other law enforcement agencies as part
of their investigative process. To disclose information to this request
could hinder the prevention and detection of crime as well as undermine
the partnership approach to investigations and law enforcement and the
health and safety of individuals.

 

Balancing Test

The Police Service relies heavily on the public providing information to
assist in investigations and has a duty to protect and defend vulnerable
individuals. The public has an expectation that any information they
provide will be treated with confidence and in line with the APP
Information Management Module. Anything which places that confidence at
risk, no matter how generic, would undermine any trust or confidence
individuals have in the Police Service. 

In addition Essex Police will not provide any further disclosure where
release of information may identify an individual and may breach the
individuals data protection rights, the exemption of Section 40 applies in
respect of this data.

 

Thank you for your interest in Essex Police.
