Dear West Mercia Police,

As the safer camera partnership is not showing details for FOI requests, no surprise to be honest given that they are not a public body, but a private company, i have had no choice but to FOI request you WMP constabulary.

1] Who is the CEO of SCP in Worcestershire ?

2] Are the regulations that Worcestershire SCP follow different in other parts of the UK or generic ?

3] Where does the money go from that is collected in speeding fines in a itemised document visible in this public domain ?

3] Why is their no address details or phone number to contact safer camera partnership for SCP in Worcestershire ? A email address does not suffice requirements of all people who are not computer literate. (Po Box number is not administrable either with lawful documents).

4] What regulations are Worcestershire SCP following and who made these regulations up with contact details visible to the public on this public domain ?

5] As West Mercia Police are in partnership with SCP, what part of law/legislation that shows this is not a conflict in law ?

Kind regards,

peter danby and associates.

Dear West Mercia Police,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of West Mercia Police's handling of my FOI request 'Worcestershire Safety Camera Partnership is a private company.......'.

Are you saying the Safety Camera Partnership is not regulated by a Chief Executive Officer and that the law does not apply to them ?

Show me your terms and conditions and by who's authority do you comply with SCP ?

When a person finds a unmarked SCP van unmarked van, is it usual practice to dismiss the number plate of so called SCP vehicle ?

Are you saying legislation is higher than COMMON LAW ?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Why the reluctance to be "fair just and transparent" as many rightly expect?

Nothing vexatious whatsoever. Just a plain simple request at that? By people who deserve to know answers. If anything the tactics used to avoid this all become the more suspicious, open to public scrutiny and frankly not on.

Awaiting an honest, open and scrupulous reply.

Dear Information Compliance West Mercia,

You are under the impression that if a FOI request does not fit your criteria, that you are unable to answer the questions.

I reported a speed camera van and you say it does not exist, Safety Camera Partnership must have a log book of where these vans are during the day". I have given WMP the registration details of the vehicle and nothing is done, but you penalise motorists regardless...!

I have asked pertinent questions that are of interest to the public and should be of concern to the corporate police.

Kind regards,

peter danby and associates

Dear Information Compliance West Mercia,

Are you refusing this FOI request?

PO BOX numbers by public authorities are not lawful and are also against Royal Mails regulations.

Dear Information Compliance West Mercia,

If common sense prevailed, you would answer the questions as the public have a right to know what is going on, i do not accept your explanation as answering my questions.....

Kind regards,

Every penny from speeding fines goes to The Treasury via The Central Ticket Office, which are then public funds.

Gadawodd Peter Danby anodiad ()

If only money had value to it" and as for speeding, it's just a revenue earner for the corporations..... Many people still have common sense and it's good to question so called authorities as a PO Box number is a none contractual venue.... DVLA wont let us use a PO Box Number, but it suits the so called authorities, are we slaves to them? If so i would like to see the contract !!
