Dear Derbyshire Police Authority,
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 could you please provide
me with information regarding the following:
1) In the last 12 months, how many times has Chief Constable Mick Creedon been invited to speak to members of the local community regarding issues concerning Derbyshire Police Constabulary and how many of these invitations have been accepted?
2) How many members make up the Derbyshire Police Authority?
3) How many of these members are employed full time with the Derbyshire Police Authority?
4) How many of the members that make up Derby Police Authority have been serving police officers?
Dear Mr Willis
Further to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find our response attached.
Dear Kelly, Elizabeth, 4817,
I'm surprised that you don't hold such information. Is it not one of the primary roles of Derbyshire Police Authority to hold the Chief Constable accountable to the public? If so, then you would surely hold details of such 'accountability'.
In all honesty I have yet to find a single fact or figure that Derbyshire Police Authority actually do hold, even though their web site clearly states that they are responsible for 'monitoring the work of Derbyshire Constabulary.'
It's little wonder that this Quango is being dissolved and replaced with a commissioner in September. Hopefully his job will involve a little more work than being a distribution center for e-mails.
