SEARCHES TO LOCATE INFORMATION

To locate the information relevant to your request searches were conducted
within the MPS.  The searches located information relevant to your
request.

DECISION

This letter is to inform you that it will not be possible to respond to
your request within the cost threshold.  This response serves as a Refusal
Notice under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act).
 Please see the legal annex for further information on the exemptions
applied in respect of your request.

REASONS FOR DECISION

With regards to your request at Q.1 and Q.2

Q.1 A breakdown of the weapons that have been confiscated in Croydon over
the last 5 years. Broken down into how many of each weapon (knife, gun
etc.) for each year. (I.e. 27 knives in 2013, 12 guns in 2013, 34 knives
in 2014, 11 guns in 2014 etc.)

Q.2 A breakdown of the percentages of each age group that each different
category of weapon was confiscated from for each year in Coryodon. (I.e.
24% of knives in 2012 were confiscated from the 18-24 age group or 24% of
guns in 2013 were confiscated from the 25-30 age group.)

To locate and retrieve the requested information would require the
interrogation of various places the MPS records this information.
Unfortunately there is no central recording system to capture the
information, this is recorded on Custody Records, Property Book 66, Police
Officer's pocket books and the CRIS system (Crime Reporting Information
System). To locate and retrieve answers to Q1 and Q2 would require a
manual read of thousands of records within the four recording systems
mentioned. To comply with this request would take approximately over 100
hours.

We therefore estimate that the cost of complying with this request would
exceed the appropriate limit. The appropriate limit has been specified in
regulations and for agencies outside central Government; this is set at
£450.00.   This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 18
hours [at a rate of £25 per hour] in determining whether the MPS holds the
information, and locating, retrieving and extracting the information.

I would like to provide you with advice as to how you may narrow your
request so that it does not exceed the appropriate limit.

If a new request was submitted, we could provide answers to questions 3 -
8 subject to any exemptions that may apply.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please
contact via email at [email address], quoting the reference
number above.

Yours sincerely

Bibi Karim
Information Manager

LEGAL ANNEX

Section 17(5) of the Act provides:

(5) A public authority which, in relation to any request for information,
is relying on a claim that section 12 or 14 applies must, within the time
for complying with section 1(1), give the applicant a notice stating that
fact.

Section 12(1)&(2) of the Act provides:

(1) Section 1 does not oblige a public authority to comply with a request
for information if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with
the request would exceed the appropriate limit.

(2) Subsection (1) does not exempt the public authority from its
obligation to comply with paragraph (a) of section 1(1) unless the
estimated cost of complying with that paragraph alone would exceed the
appropriate limit.

Section 16 of the Act provides:

(1) It shall be the duty of a public authority to provide advice and
assistance, so far as it would be reasonable to expect the authority to do
so, to persons who propose to make, or have made, requests for information
to it.
