This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Northamptonshire Police.

Hannah James (Ataliwyd y cyfrif)

Dear Northamptonshire Police,

Q1 How many Police officers of all ranks in your force have criminal records?

Q2 Are there any officers serving who have perpetrated domestic abuse?

I'd like the statistics for both questions to date from 2010 or as far back as you can go that doesn't result in going over the allocated time and cost for an FOI request.

Yours faithfully,

Hannah James

Dear Bailey Michael,

Thank you for your response.

I am a fair person, so I will allocate you the extra time needed to retrieve the information. I am merely going through the process of necessity and protocol.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you and the police force you represent (and other forces) that our right to complain about standards does not and will never cease to be heard at the hands of your internal complaints department or that of the professional standards or ICO.

Just so you know.

Yours sincerely,

Hannah James

Dear Ms James   

 

RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - REQUEST FOR INFORMATION Our Ref: 003675/18

 

With reference to your e-mail received 19/06/2018 requesting information
relating to the below:

 

Q1 How many Police officers of all ranks in your force have criminal
records?

 

Q2 Are there any officers serving who have perpetrated domestic abuse?

 

I'd like the statistics for both questions to date from 2010 or as far
back as you can go that doesn't result in going over the allocated time
and cost for an FOI request.

 

The information you are requesting is not held by Northamptonshire Police
in any reasonably retrievable form. The only means of establishing
information of the nature you are requesting would be by way of  manual
examination of each record.

 

It is my assessment that the cost of providing you with the information
requested would exceed the 'appropriate level' as set out in the Freedom
of Information (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004.

 

My assessment is that it would cost 1100 (approximate number of officers)
x 10 minutes each (minimum) = over 183 hours at £25 per hour to respond to
your request, which exceeds the 'appropriate limit' (currently £450 for
'prescribed costs').

 

In view of the above, and in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000, please take this letter as a Refusal Notice.

 

You may wish to refine and resubmit your request so that it reduces the
costs shown above and is then within the 'appropriate limit' shown above.
(I cannot think of a means to refine the request in order to provide the
information you are seeking) but if you would like some further
information about how to proceed with your request then please contact the
undersigned.

 

I trust you find this information to be satisfactory but if you have any
further queries please do not hesitate to contact me. On behalf of
Northamptonshire Police I would like to apologise for the delay in getting
this information to you.

 

Northamptonshire Police provides a review and appeals procedure within the
terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. If you decide to make an
appeal and, having followed the full process you are still dissatisfied,
you will then have the right to direct your comments to the Information
Commissioner who will give due consideration to the matter. See Appendix
'a' attached.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Barrie Gemma,

What a surprise. This is what needs to stop. The escaping of accountability due to cost and any other excuse.
Obviously, it is out of your hands to make the necessary changes.

Yours sincerely,

Hannah James
