Dear Wiltshire Constabulary,

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).

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Elliott

Force Disclosure Unit, Wiltshire Constabulary

Dear Daniel,

Our Ref: FOI 2019/918

Thank you for your request for information dated 16 September 2019 concerning Officer and Staff conviction data. Your request will be considered under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Your request will now be considered and you will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. In some circumstances Wiltshire Police may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at the earliest opportunity.

There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request. If this is the case you will be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you. If you chose not to make a payment then your request will remain unanswered.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.

Kind regards

Ellie James

Dear Force Disclosure Unit,

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 Force Disclosure Unit,

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

Hi Daniel,

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner to let you know that a response for your request was likely to be late. At present, your request is sat with the People Services Department of Wiltshire Police and I have already chased them for a response.

Due to circumstances that have been explained to myself, I anticipate a response from People Services at some point before the end of the month, but I will endeavour to try and get a response to you as soon as possible.

Please be aware that an internal review will not be carried out until a final response has been sent to yourself.

Kind regards,

Kay

Dear Moore, Kay,

I am asking for details of officers and police staff who were employed during 2008 (that could be officers or police staff who started their employment prior to 2008 or during 2008) who obtained a conviction for a criminal offence or who obtained a a reprimand in any form from a misconduct hearing during 2008

and details of officers and police staff who were employed during 2018 (that could be officers or police staff who started their employment prior to 2018 or during 2018) who obtained a conviction for a criminal offence or who obtained a a reprimand in any form from a misconduct hearing during 2018.

I hope this clarifies things.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Elliott
