Dear City of London Police,

In 2018, work was being undertaken on an MoU for insurers; guidance across forces outlining what information can be shared, in which circumstances, under the correct GDPR gateways and recommend a time scale and charging framework.

This involved your Information Management Services, the creation of draft documentation for ABI/Lloyds consultation with their members, submission to constabularies, endorsement of the National Crime Operations Coordination Committee, undergo consultation/rework, presented to the NPCC for agreed guidelines and cascading to their teams.

I am seeking all information relating to the MoU from its current version to the present.

Yours faithfully,

P. Swift

Dear City of London Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of City of London Police's handling of my FOI request 'Memorandum of Understanding & National Guidance'.

I am seeking to understand the process as some improvements/advances have been made that I believe will be of ultimate benefit to all.

I do not accept that the exemptions are appropriate

no date has been supplied for the intended publication. The current process is many years out of date, long overdue renewal and I was informed years ago this was in progress. The information will include the work since last due for overhaul/renewal.

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

Yours faithfully,

Phil Swift

Dear Phil Swift,

I am writing in response to your request for information, received 16th

Yours sincerely,

21/06/2021 CoL response:
Request for Information Internal Review Reference No: IR2021/00339

I write in connection with your request dated 16th March for an internal review in relation to your FoIA request (ref: FOI2021/00185). The request was as follows:

I am writing to request an internal review of City of London Police's handling of my FOI request 'Memorandum of Understanding & National Guidance'.

I am seeking to understand the process as some improvements/advances have been made that I believe will be of ultimate benefit to all.

I do not accept that the exemptions are appropriate

no date has been supplied for the intended publication. The current process is many years out of date, long overdue renewal and I was informed years ago this was in progress. The information will include the work since last due for overhaul/renewal.

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

DECISION

The City of London Police Service (COLP) has completed its review and determined that I have reviewed the initial disclosure and have decided to uphold the decision made.

The use of section 22 is there to stop the unnecessary work to the public sector including the time and resources spent. As mentioned the decision to publish this was made before your request. Therefore this exemption applies. Under the act we do not need to provide a date of when we will publish.

I ask that you keep an eye on our publication scheme on our external website.

In keeping with the Freedom of Information Act, we assume that all information can be released to the public unless it is exempt. In line with normal practice we are therefore releasing the information which you requested via the City of London Police website.

I hope that this information meets your requirements. I would like to assure you that we have provided you with all relevant information that the City of London Police holds.

The City of London Police is responsible for an extremely small part of London comprising of the financial square mile in the centre of the City. The resident population is also extremely small comprising of less than 9,000 individuals.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request or the decision which has been reached, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests must be submitted within two months of the date of this response and should be addressed to:

Freedom of Information
Information Management Services
Bishopsgate Police Station
182 Bishopsgate
EC2M 4NP
E-mail: foi@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk

Please mark your complaint clearly and remember to quote the reference number in all correspondence. You have the right to ask the Information Commissioner (ICO) to investigate any aspect of your complaint. However, please note that the ICO is likely to expect internal complaints procedures to have been exhausted before beginning his investigation.

Thank you for your interest in the City of London Police.

Yours sincerely

Michela Holmes

Dear City of London Police,
Th request was:
'In 2018, work was being undertaken on an MoU for insurers; guidance across forces
outlining what information can be shared, in which circumstances, under the correct GDPR
gateways and recommend a time scale and charging framework.
This involved your Information Management Services, the creation of draft documentation

of the National Crime Operations Coordination Committee, undergo consultation/rework,
presented to the NPCC for agreed guidelines and cascading to their teams.

I am seeking all information relating to the MoU from its current version to the present.'

1. I do not accept that your exemption addresses the request, that you will necessarily publish all the information my request encompasses.
2. the request dates from 2018 i.e. you have had 3 years in which to publish the information yet have failed to do so. it appears reasonable to assume much has been put to one side, superseded, discarded and will not be included/disclosed/published. i am seeing this information.
3. the request is phrased as per information received at that time, in 2018. I expect to be provided the information circulated in 2018 which, given the time that has elapsed, is unlikely to see the light of day, be disclosed as part of the eventual publication - assuming there is any
4. please evidence when it was decided to publish ALL the information my request captures.
5. please explain why the 2018 work has yet to be published; what has occurred such that delays have arisen

6. Please confirm whether you are treating this as a new request or clarification of the original (above) if not considered concluded.

Yours faithfully,

Phil Swift
