Chief Officer Group Vehicles

The request was partially successful.

Geoffrey Goodfellow

Dear Surrey Police,

I request the below information under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000:-

1.) The make, model and specification (full specification from the
purchase) of each vehicle allocated to each member of police staff
and police officer making up the Chief Officer Group.
2.) The cost of purchase for each vehicle and the date of purchase
3.) Confirm or negate whether each vehicle is equipped with
emergency lighting and audible equipment (sirens and klaxons - whether overt or covert)
4.) The current police driving qualification (standard / response /
advanced) of each member of police staff and officer that makes up
Chief Officer Group together with the date that the said member
passed their driving qualification or indeed the last date they
were reassessed against the requirements of the driving
qualification
5.) The most common marked police vehicle currently in use by your
force
6.) The cost (average cost if necessary) for the purchase of the
most commonly purchased vehicle as per question 5.

I am conscious that claim may be laid with regards to exemptions
being available in respect of my questions relating to costings
under Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(Commercial Interests). Nonetheless, I would like to reassure you
that other forces have provided this information and I would ask
that, should you consider applying this exemption, you consider
carefully the difference between 'commercial interests' and
'financial interests' as I do not feel the release of such
information would indeed prejudice any further commercial interests
but simply allow your force to be accountable with regards to the
expenditure of public finances.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Geoffrey Goodfellow

Dear Geoffrey,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE NO: 165-16-166

I write in connection with your recent FOI request which was received on the 2/2/16 – see below

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You will receive a response within the statutory timescales of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. In some circumstances Surrey Police may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at the earliest opportunity.

There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request. If this is the case you will be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you. If you choose not to make payment then your request will remain unanswered.
Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.

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

Dear Geoffrey Goodfellow

Freedom of Information (FOI) Reference No: 165-16-166

I write in connection with your request for information received on 2 February 2016 concerning Chief Officer Group Vehicles.

The FOI Act requires public authorities to comply with all requests promptly and within 20 working days, however, whilst every effort is made to comply with this requirement, on occasions it is necessary to exceed the 20 day time limit to ensure that all relevant information is included within the reply.

I am writing today to advise you that we are still processing your request and I would expect to be able to send a final response within two weeks but will keep you updated if that is not the case. The delay is due to the high number of FOI requests the team are processing.
