Dear Mr. Cysewski,

Thank you for your request for information regarding the names of the two officers who were issued with final written warnings following the arrest of a male.

I would be grateful if you could supply a copy of some form of ID which confirms your name to satisfy ourselves that S8 of the Act is being properly applied and that a pseudonym is not being used.

Once the ID is received your request will be dealt with. If we do not here from you within 14 days the case will be closed.

Yours sincerely,

Sian Boynton
Information Compliance Assistant

Says it all really:

The act says this:
"
Pseudonyms
28.
If the requester has used a pseudonym then their request will be invalid.
29.
In some cases it will be immediately obvious that a pseudonym is being used, for example where the request has been signed in the name of a famous fictional character, such as ‘Mickey Mouse’, an inanimate object, like ‘Mirrorball’, or by location, for instance as ‘disgruntled of Stockport’. Pun names such as Sue D Nym may also fall into this category.
30.
However, if the name provided is not an obvious pseudonym and the public authority has no reason to believe that a pseudonym is being used, the authority should just accept the name provided at face value.
31.
Whilst this may mean that some pseudonymous requests will slip through the net, we would not want to see a situation where authorities routinely carry out checks on requesters’ identities. The Act provides a public right to information, not a right limited to certain individuals."

The Information Commissioner's Office do not want identity checks. Humberside Police should not be requesting this.

That's useful, but if the force has already decided it doesn't want to answer it is unlikely to change its mind.

Escalate it to the Information Commissioner's Office Dominick
