Geoffrey Goodfellow

Dear South Wales 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
