Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (2000).  
You will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days, as defined by the 
Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party.   
In advance of our response, I would like to point out that the Freedom of Information Act provides 
the public with a right to request access to recorded information held by the Constabulary.  If any

given a revised timescale at the earliest opportunity. 
There may be a fee payable for the provision of the information you have requested.  If this is the 
case you will be informed, and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive 
payment from you.  If you chose not to make payment then your request will remain unanswered. 
Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in 
order to answer your query in the fullest possible way.  Again, you will be informed if this is the
