Briefing Session for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire Councillors - 16 July 2020

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner,

The Acting Police and Crime Commissioner stated:

"I will be holding a virtual briefing session for councillors in South Cambs and Cambs [sic] City on Thursday 16th July"

The event was also listed at

In relation to this event I would like to request the release of:

* Any recordings (audio and/or video) of the event, including any live chat logs.
* A copy of any materials used during, or prepared for, the event eg. presentation slides, briefing papers, speeches etc.  
* A copy of any agenda and papers for the event, and any plans for the event.* Any notes / minutes relating to the event..
* A copy of any invitation sent to councillors, or councils.* Correspondence from councillors or councils directly in response to any invitation / notice of the event, or relating directly to the event, including any matters raised directly in lieu of attendance during the event, apologies for absence etc.* Information relating to any future similar event planned for Cambridge City councillors.
In respect of any recording of the event I would like to request the means of communication used to be publication on the Acting Commissioner's YouTube channel (as unlisted media if desired). I would expect the other material to be communicated by email. 
I note that had the Acting Commissioner engaged with councillors via formal council meetings held in public rather than via a private event there would be no need for this request.
