We're waiting for Alex Beard to read a recent response and update the status.

Good afternoon,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the freedom of information act. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act you are required to advise and assist requesters.

I am requesting the following information:
I would like to know the total number of injuries that police officers have suffered. Please provide a total for each year I will stipulate below.
I would like to know the types of injuries that they are recorded to have suffered. I would like this broken down across the time period below.
I would like this information from across the past five years, up to the most recent set of data available for 2019.
If the injuries were sustained whilst working in a neighbouring force please provide an additional breakdown.
I would like this information electronically.

I understand that under the act I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm via email that you have received this request. Ideally I would like the information as outlined in my request emailed to me. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

If there are any issues please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks,
Alex

Good afternoon Melody,
Thanks for getting back to me.
In response to your question: "Is your request referring to injuries sustained whilst on duty?"

Could you please provide me a breakdown of the injuries sustained on and off duty please.
If this is possible within the cost limits of the act, please proceed.
Also I have been queried by other forces, I'd like to ask that you break the injuries down between 'physical and mental classifications' if this is appropriate to the data you hold.

Thank you again,
Alex Beard

Dear Mr Beard,

 

Reference: 532/2019

 

I write in respect to your request for information dated and received
within the Freedom of Information Unit on 07/06/2019 regarding injuries
sustained by Police Officers.

 

Your request for information has been handled under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and has now been considered.

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 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.

 

Dyfed Powys Police are unable to confirm or deny whether it does hold the
information you have requested, since we consider that the Section 12 (2)
exemption the Cost of Compliance exceeds the Appropriate Limit applies to
it.

 

Where exemptions are relied upon Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 requires Dyfed Powys Police, when refusing to provide such
information (because the information is exempt) to provide you the
applicant with a notice which:   (a) states that fact, (b) specifies the
exemption in question and (c) states (if that would not otherwise be
apparent) why the exemption applies.

 

Please see the attached response document which indicates the time
estimated by the Force it would take to complete the request as a whole.

 

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this letter acts
as a Refusal Notice for the whole of this request under Section 17(5) A
public authority which, in relation to any request for information, is
relying on a claim that section 12 or section 14 applies must, within the
time for complying with section 1(1), give the applicant a notice stating
that fact. You may wish to refine and resubmit your request so that it
reduces the time shown above to fall within the 18 hours, however with due
regard to the time estimate provided above it is unlikely that refining
your request will fall under the 18 hours as the same method and format
will have to be undertaken. Should you require any further advice in
relation to this matter please don’t hesitate to contact the Freedom of
Information Unit.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review by writing to the Freedom of Information
Unit address supplied on the attached appeal process document.

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint
you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

The Information Commissioners Office,

Wycliffe House,

Water Lane,

Wilmslow,

Cheshire

SK9 5AF

Tel. 0303 123 1113 or 01625 54 57 45

Website: [1]www.ico.gov.uk

 

There is no charge for making an appeal.

 

Should you wish to discuss this matter further please don’t hesitate to
contact the Freedom of Information Unit as indicated below.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest
in Dyfed Powys Police.

 

Yours sincerely

 

G. Matthews
