Thank you for this information, whilst I understand the need for privacy of individuals; surely the fact a Police Officer is a Police Officer is not secret information and therefore the roles which each has in a public department like Professional standards requires no cloak and dagger secrecy - and this actually secrecy approach actually undermines public confidence in the Police. As a result of this I am asking for an internal review as public accountability of the Police is an important issue and if the PSD is not accountable and transparent in its Officers roles this makes a complete mockery of the idea of Police accountability.

Dear Kent Police,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Kent Police's handling of my FOI request 'Could I have a list of staff and roles in Kent PSD'.

Dear Mr Reynolds,
 
Thank you for your email of 1 March 2013 in which you request an internal
review.  Could you confirm that you are objecting to the names of officers
and staff being exempted since the roles you requested were in fact
provided in the Appendix to our response.
