The number of staff and officer convictions, for the years of 2008 and 2018 (Jan 1 - Dec 31 of both years) listed by the year of conviction, the offence and the outcome.

If your records do not go back as far as 2008 then I will accept the earliest year you have records for after 2008 and 2018 (the years between are not being requested).

Dear Freedom of Information Mailbox,

Please note that this request is not in regards to convictions of staff and officers either before or after their employment with the force, and is only for staff and officers who were convicted while still in employment by the force at the time, even if they were on suspension at the time.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Elliott

Dear Freedom of Information Mailbox,

Section 10(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 states that:
Subject to subsections (2) and (3), a public authority must comply with section 1(1) promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt.

Since the time frame set out in the FoI Act 2000 has been exceeded, and Section 50(1) of the FoI Act 2000 states that:
Any person (in this section referred to as “the complainant”) may apply to the Commissioner for a decision whether, in any specified respect, a request for information made by the complainant to a public authority has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of Part I.

I am therefore writing to you to remind you of this obligation and give you the further opportunity to complete my request by way of internal review, else I will have to take the failure to adhere to the FoI Act 2000 to the ICO.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Elliott

1 Atodiad

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

 

Thank you for your email dated 16 September 2019 in which you made a
request for access to certain information which may be held by Northumbria
Police.

 

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of
access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority
(including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

 

You asked:

 

Please supply me with officer and staff conviction data broken down as
follows:

 

The number of staff and officer convictions, for the years of 2008 and
2018 (Jan 1 - Dec 31 of both years) listed by the year of conviction, the
offence and the outcome.

 

If your records do not go back as far as 2008 then I will accept the
earliest year you have records for after 2008 and 2018 (the years between
are not being requested).

 

On the 18^th September you then advised ‘Please note that this request is
not in regards to convictions of staff and officers either before or after
their employment with the force, and is only for staff and officers who
were convicted while still in employment by the force at the time, even if
they were on suspension at the time.’

 

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I
provide a response for your attention.

 

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the
Professional Standards Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm
that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

 

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a
specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an
indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another.
Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the
procedures used locally in capturing the data. For this reason responses
between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative
purposes.

 

The information we have supplied to you is likely to contain intellectual
property rights of Northumbria Police. Your use of the information must be
strictly in accordance with the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as
amended) or such other applicable legislation. In particular, you must not
re-use this information for any commercial purpose.

 

You may be interested to know that Northumbria Police routinely publish
information via the Disclosure Log. The aim of the Disclosure Log is to
promote openness and transparency by voluntarily placing information into
the public arena.

 

The Disclosure Log contains copies of some of the information that has
been disclosed by Northumbria Police in response to requests made under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Whilst it is not possible to publish all responses we will endeavour to
publish those where we feel that the information disclosed is in the wider
public interest.

 

The Disclosure Log will be updated once responses have been sent to the
requester.

 

I have provided the relevant link below.

How to complain

 

If you are unhappy with our decision or do not consider that we have
handled your request properly and we are unable to resolve this issue
informally, you are entitled to make a formal complaint to us under our
complaints procedure, attached.

 

If you are still unhappy after we have investigated your complaint and
reported to you the outcome, you may complain directly to the Information
Commissioner’s Office and request that they investigate to ascertain
whether we have dealt with your request in accordance with the Act.

 

Yours sincerely
