Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above
reference.

Under the Freedom of Information Act we are required to reply within 20
working days.  The Act does not specify a limit to the number of
information requests a public authority may receive or the number of
requests or questions an applicant may submit.  However, there are
exemptions in the Act that can apply and these include where the cost of
complying with the request would extend beyond the reasonable cost limit,
(currently 18 hours or £450), or if the request is otherwise manifestly
unreasonable in its scope or nature.  Requests that ask a great many
questions, or a number of detailed requests submitted at the same time,
may make it necessary for Essex Police to refuse the requests wholly or in
part.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has responsibility for
providing oversight and guidance for the legislation and they have
produced advice for applicants on submitting effective requests.  Further
information can be found on the Commissioner’s website at
[1]www.ico.gov.uk specific information relating to submitting a request
can be found at:
[2]https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/offici...

 

While we process your request, please take the time to consider the ICO’s
advice and whether you feel it may be beneficial to amend or refine your
request. Our team is happy to discuss your request with you and will be
able to provide advice as to what kind of information will be available
from Essex Police.

Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above
reference. Having completed my enquiries I am able to respond as follows:

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at
Sec1(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held. The second duty at Sec1(1)(b) is to disclose information
that has been confirmed as being held. Where exemptions are relied upon
s17 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.

In respect of your enquiry:

Could you please provide me with the following:

 

I) The number of PC's you intend to recruit throughout 2016

II) number of PCSO's you intend to recruit in 2016

III) number of custody officers you intend to recruit in 2016

 

Essex Police does hold some information relating to your request. I have
made enquiries within Essex Police and I can confirm the following data
and comments which have been provided to me in relation to your FOI
submission.

 

 

PCSO Recruitment

 

There are no planned intakes for PCSOs for the 2016/2017 financial year. 

 

Police Officers

 

Essex Police are projected to recruit between 140 fte and 180 fte Student
Constables in the 2016/2017 financial year.  Recruitment projections for
Police Officers vary on a month by month basis due to changes in attrition
and savings requirements therefore this figure is approximate and is
subject to change.

 

Detention Officers

 

No intakes are planned at this stage however this will be reviewed to take
into account attrition as the year progresses.

 

 

Please note however that general information is provided under the
following link [1]http://www.essex.police.uk/recruitment.a...

 

I hope that the information I have provided is of assistance. Thank you
for your interest in Essex Police.

 

Kind regards,
