Body Worn Cameras - Ongoing usage and costs

Max Stirling made this Freedom of Information request to British Transport Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Transport Police,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the
information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000.

Please send me:

The details of your use of body cameras in your organisation –

Who provides the body cameras and footage/evidence management used by the MPS?
How many body cameras in all are currently owned and/or used by your organisation?
Were the cameras bought as a one off purchase and if so, how much did they cost your organisation?
If they are part of an ongoing contract - what is the current contract term (how long is it and when does it expire) and what is the value of said contract?
Where is the data recorded stored – on premises locally or on cloud?
Who is the point of contact for your body camera programme?

If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you
could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are
required to advise and assist requesters.

If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the
grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with
copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that
information should not be treated as confidential if such an
agreement has not been signed.

I understand that you are required to respond to my request within
the 20 working days after you receive this letter.

I would be grateful if you could confirm that you have received
this request.

Yours faithfully,

Max Stirling

Dear Mr Stirling

Freedom of Information request ref: 211-18

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’) for the following information:

Who provides the body cameras and footage/evidence management used by the MPS?
How many body cameras in all are currently owned and/or used by your organisation?
Were the cameras bought as a one off purchase and if so, how much did they cost your organisation?
If they are part of an ongoing contract - what is the current contract term (how long is it and when does it expire) and what is the value of said contract?
Where is the data recorded stored – on premises locally or on cloud?
Who is the point of contact for your body camera programme?

It is not possible to progress your request at this time, as clarification is needed from you to enable us to locate the information you have asked for.

The first question on your request refers to the MPS which I would assume to be referring to the Metropolitan Police. Please could you confirm whether the first question and all of the subsequent questions should refer to the British Transport Police rather than the MPS?

In line with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 10(6), the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until the required clarification has been received, restarting on the date when the information is received.

Kind regards
