Dear Mr Atkinson

Thank you for your Freedom Of Information request ref 002233/19.

I write to advise you that there is a substantial backlog in
processing Freedom of Information Requests. Regrettably, one of the
delayed requests is yours. Northamptonshire Police would like to apologise
for that delay. To improve this situation we have been working closely
with the Information Commissioners Office.

The force is attempting to provide a long term solution to this problem
and in the interim we are taking action to deal with the backlog and put
in place a more resilient service. To assist in making those improvements
and in support of meeting future demands, we would ask that if you
no-longer require our response could you please advise us as such by
return of this email.

Your assistance in this matter would be very much appreciated, helping us
to improve our response times for future requests. If we have not received
a response from you by 02/07/2019 we will assume that you still require a
response and will look to provide it in due course.

 

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Freedom of Information Officer

Northamptonshire Police
