Thank you for your enquiry which has been forwarded to us from another
department within Essex Police.  Your request 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 exemption at s14 may be engaged
if the burden on the authority is increased through multiple requests on
differing subjects

 

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.

 

Kind regards

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

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:

Please can you provide each month for the last 36 months the number of
speeding fines issued by you in respect of your section of the M25
motorway.

Having completed my enquiries I am able to respond as follows:

In respect of Sec1(1)(a) Essex Police does not hold information relating
to your request.

 

Therefore, and in accordance with section 17(1) of the Act, this
communication must act as a refusal notice to provide all of the
information that could be interpreted as being captured by your request.

 

To provide some explanation, and to meet our duty to assist I can provide
the following information

 

Fines are paid direct to HM Courts Service.  You may wish to contact HM
Courts Services should you require fines information.

 

HADECS cameras on the M25 are installed, monitored and operated by
Highways England. If you have any questions regarding the cameras please
redirect your questions to Highways England. 

 

Kind regards
