Thank you for your request received by Kent Police on 18 January 2019. I
note you seek access, in summary, to information relating to:

 

Controlling and coercive behaviour

 

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) provides that a public
authority respond to an FOI request within 20 working days. Please be
aware that as well as experiencing very high request volumes, Kent Police
is currently in the process of transitioning to a new crime recording
database. This means that whilst we will endeavour to complete your
request as soon as possible it is likely that a response may well be
delayed, particularly where crime data is sought.

 

Your interest in Kent Police is appreciated and pending a specific
response to your request, I enclose a sheet, which summarises your rights.

Dear Ms Savage,

 

I write in relation to the Freedom of Information request you made to Kent
Police on 18 January 2019 concerning controlling and coercive behaviour.
Unfortunately, due to an increase in workload there has been a delay in
responding to some FOI requests and for this I apologise. We are working
on progressing your request and will respond as soon as possible.
