Police Officers who have been charged with a criminal offence from 2017 to present

We're waiting for James Barker to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Cleveland Police,

Please can you provide me with a spreadsheet, or a list of all police officers either currently or previously serving with Cleveland Police who have been convicted of a criminal offence from 2017 to Present ?

Please can that list also detail the offence, & the punishment given to the individual...

I confirm that I do not require the specific names of individuals who have been convicted...

Yours faithfully,

James Barker

Freedom of Information, Cleveland Police

Dear Mr Barker,

Enquiry Ref: 12729/2021

I write in connection with your request for information dated 17th March 2021 and received by this office on that date. Please accept our apologies for the late response, your patience is appreciated. Below are the questions raised in your request and all of the information we have been able to retrieve.

1. Please can you provide me with a spreadsheet, or a list of all police officers either currently or previously serving with Cleveland Police who have been convicted of a criminal offence from 2017 to present?
a) Enquiries within the Force have identified that such information is nor recorded with the Standards and Ethics such information would be picked up by either the Vetting process or H.R. and Cleveland Police would rely upon the following exemption;

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (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. Where exemptions are relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption applies.

Having made enquiries within the Force regarding your request we have been advised that there is not a list of this information and if held it is recorded on the personal file of each employee and checked as part of the periodical vetting process however to provide the information would require either the manual retrieval and reading of every personal record or vetting form and it is estimated that this would take in excess of the appropriate time stipulated by the Secretary for Constitutional Affairs, Lord Falconer on the 18th Of October 2004, that is, eighteen hours. This falls under the exemption of 'Compliance exceeding the appropriate limit' covered by Section 12 (1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and as such this work could not be undertaken. Therefore, please treat this as a refusal notice under S17 of the Freedom of information Act. In accordance with Section 16 of the Act I have a duty to provide advice and assistance on this occasion I am unable to offer assistance as reducing the time specified would still take over the time period specified.
However as a gesture of good will, outside of the Act we have provided an answer to question 2.

2. Please can that list also detail the offence, & the punishment given to the individual?
We have been able to identify one officer with a conviction which occurred whilst employed by Cleveland Police, the offence was Drink Driving in 2017 the court result was a fine and disqualification and a Final Written Warning was issued as a result of force investigation.

Please note any statistical data supplied in relation to Freedom of Information requests is a snapshot of data held at the time the request was received by the Freedom of Information office and is subject to constant change/updates.

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response you receive.

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be evidenced.

We have made every effort to ensure a response was provided within statutory deadlines, however due to current circumstances delays have been unavoidable. If your response was late we apologise for any inconvenience it may have caused and thank you for your patience. If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office.

Yours sincerely,
