Dear David Steel,

Would you please answer:

(e) Please indicate total revenues from all sources, and break them down into categories.

There must be SOME income or you could not operate.

Would you please provide these details, which your accountant can provide from the Statement of Accounts.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sirs:

Please have someone respond to my request within the legal timeframe.

This request was originally made on March 2, and I had to send reminders to you directly in order to even get an acknowledgement. Now David Steel has clocked off without providing a legitimate answer.

Dear Jean James

ACPOS accounts are publicly available via the Companies House website. For your convenience, I have attached a copy of the ACPOS Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2011.

As regards general income, I would draw your attention to the section 'Incoming resources' on page 6, and 'Note 3' on page 9.

ACPOS received 'funding' of £314,160 from the Scottish Executive, and £232,583 from Scottish Police Forces.

The statement also indicates 'donations' of £877. This figure was raised by a raffle during the ACPOS annual conference. ACPOS donated this sum to the Northern Police Convalescent and Treatment Centre.

Total 'incoming resources' therefore amounted to £547,620 to 31 March 2011.

I trust that this information is helpful.

Yours sincerely

David Steel

SRBC? May be of interest.

I am sorry. I simply don't understand what Mr. Wright is trying to say.

Your FOI was time delayed due to ACPOS being defunct on April 1st of that year. David Steel is a very astute individual.

The SBRC/SRBC are the Scottish Business Resilience Centre which is the NFP business arm of the police. There is also corporate services at Police Scotland and they are responsible for CHIS (human intelligence sources who get paid via the police budget too). Getting information is a mine field - watch the wordings and deliberate delays.

Partnership sharing & collaboration (also Community Empowerment Act. 'Alternatives to Justice' too! also covers things you're asking. Councils, NHS, DWP, HMRC & partners/stakeholders (sometimes business interests, ALEO's & EALEO's do this work for the police (outsourced)). Private companies ran by ex cops also do these services (I've logged about 70 thus far) & get the contracts for all of those named above & government ones too.

Can I help?

Yours

T Wright (Ms)
