Dear Mr Smith,

Reference No: 628/2019

Thank you for your request for information dated and received by the Freedom of Information Unit on 05/07/19 concerning Body Worn Video (BVW).

This request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Dyfed-Powys Police can confirm that it does hold the information covered by your request; however we believe that we need further time in which to provide a full response to you.

We consider that the following exemption of the Freedom of Information Act may apply to the information in part:

Section 43(2) Commercial Interests

(2) Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice commercial interests of any person (including the public authority holding it).

Section 43 is a class-based qualified exemption. This means that the legislators when writing the legislation considered that the release of such information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 would cause harm to the public authority or individual concerned. There is therefore no requirement to carry out a HARM Test in respect of such information. However there is a requirement to carry out a Public Interest Test in order to establish whether the public interest in maintaining the exemption may be outweighed by a wider public benefit in disclosure.

We now need further time in which to consider the public interest in disclosing the information. We will endeavour to provide you with a response as soon as possible and in any case by 03/09/19. Should there be any further delay we will write to you accordingly.

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information had been handled, you can request a review by writing to the freedom of information unit address supplied on the attached appeal process document.

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

The Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House,
Water Lane,
Wilmslow,
Cheshire,
SK9 5AF.

Telephone: 0303 123 1113
Or: 01625 545745
Website: www.ico.org.uk

There is no charge for making an appeal.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in Dyfed Powys Police.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Smith,

 

Reference: 628/2019

 

I write in connection with your request for information dated and received
in the Freedom of Information Unit at Dyfed-Powys Police on 05/07/2019
regarding Body Worn Video data.

 

Your request for information has been handled under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and has now been considered.

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 places two duties on
public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section
1(1) (a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held. The second duty at Section 1(1) (b) is to disclose
information that has been confirmed as being held.

 

I can confirm that Dyfed-Powys Police does hold the information you have
requested. However we are also withholding some of that information since
we consider that the following exemptions apply

Section 43(2) – Commercial Interests

 

Where exemptions are relied upon section 17 of FOIA requires that we
provide the applicant with a notice which:

 

a) States that fact

b) Specifies the exemption(s) in question and

c) State (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies

 

Please see the attached response document which details the release of
some of the information as well as the harm and public interest test
relative to the application of the exemption which in all the
circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the
exemptions outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review by writing to the Freedom of Information
unit as detailed in the attached appeal document.

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint
you have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

 

The Information Commissioners Office,

Wycliffe House,

Water Lane,

Wilmslow,

Cheshire

SK9 5AF

Tel. 0303 123 1113

Website: [1]www.ico.gov.uk

 

There is no charge for making an appeal.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Dyfed Powys Police.

 

Yours sincerely
