PCC Correspondence Kent, Kent Police and Crime Commissioner

Thank you for your email, which has been received by me and will be dealt
with as soon as possible.

 

If you have not already included this information, I would be grateful if
you could reply to this with your address, telephone number, and any crime
or incident reference numbers that are relevant to your case.

 

As the PCC, there are certain things that I can and cannot become involved
in. I set Kent Police's county-wide priorities and hold the Chief
Constable to account for delivering them. I decide the council tax precept
and determine the overall Police budget. I also commission services for
victims and Crime prevention.

 

I am not responsible for operational matters, such as Police complaints
(except those against the Chief Constable) or deployment of Officers, for
example, so your email may be referred to Kent Police or another body.

 

You should not e-mail the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in
an emergency.  When life is in danger or a crime is in progress, always
call 999.

 

Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact me and I will respond
in due course.

 

Kind regards 

 

Matthew Scott

Kent Police and Crime Commissioner

Dear Mr Jackson

 

Thank you for the Freedom of Information Request (FoIR) you recently sent
to the Office of the Kent Police & Crime Commissioner (OKPCC). 

  

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act (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. 

 

·         Section 17 of the FoIA requires that where exemptions are relied
upon, we provide the applicant with a notice which:

o   states that fact

o   specifies the exemption(s) in question and

o   states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies.

Please see your request below in bold, and the response provided within
the text of this e-mail. 

 

Charity "Common Purpose"; meaning the training organisation of that
name:http://www.commonpurpose.org/home.aspx

 

On a yearly basis from 2002 to 2017, unless of course money was paid to
Common Purpose from an earlier period, in which case please include
information from the earlier period.

 

1. Name all employees who have attended a Common Purpose course?

 

2. How much money has been paid to this organisation?

 

3. Please provide copies of invoices/receipts.

 

For clarity purposes please note that the Office of the Police and Crime
Commissioner replaced the now-abolished police authorities in November
2012.  The OKPCC does not hold any record of an employee attending a
Common Purpose course since that date.  Consequently no payment has been
paid to this organisation and there are not any copies of
invoices/receipts to provide.

Under the FoIA, if you feel your request has not been properly handled or
you are otherwise dissatisfied with the outcome of your request, you have
the right to appeal. This would be to this Office in the first instance.
You can do this by e-mail or by post to the address at the foot of this
communication. We will then conduct an internal review to investigate the
matter and endeavour to reply within 20 working days.  If your appeal
concerns the decision to apply an exemption, it would assist the review if
you outline why you believe the exemption does not apply. 

 

If you remain dissatisfied following this process and do not believe we
can help you any further, then you may wish to apply to the Information
Commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 5AF for
a decision.  Further information about this process can be found at
[1]https://ico.org.uk.   

Yours sincerely

 

(sent unsigned by e-mail)
