Dear Derbyshire Constabulary,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 could you please provide
me with information regarding the following:

1) Does Derbyshire Constabulary or Derbyshire Police Authority or any other governing body set arrest and or prosecution targets to Police Constables in Derbyshire?
2) If so what are these arrest targets over what period of time?
3) Outside of official targets, are police constables offered any incentives or merit whatsoever for arrests made and / or prosecutions achieved?

Yours faithfully,

Rob Willis

Freedom of Information Office,


I write in connection with your request for information as shown below.

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act). You should expect to 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 some circumstances Derbyshire Constabulary may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised timescale at the earliest opportunity.

There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request. 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 choose 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 case.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write or contact the Freedom of Information Manager, on telephone number 0345 123 3333 quoting the reference number shown in the header of this e-mail.
