Dear IDO

I do not believe my request I have inserted below has been answered.

1. How many Lockdown penalty fines have been issued in Inverclyde to date.
2. What is the total monetary value of the fines issued in Inverclyde to date.

I have been sent a link to the generic weekly update of the COVID-19 FPN numbers. These are not clearly listed for Inverclyde nor do they contain the monetary value of these fines.

Please can you look at this request again and provide the requested information.

Yours sincerely,

John Jones

Dear Mr Jones,

 

The information is available to area command level in the spreadsheet we
directed you to.

 

If you click on the first link on the page - Coronavirus Enforcement
Information to 15 July 2020

 

Then filter column D of the spreadsheet for Inverclyde.

 

The monetary value of the fines was provided in the response document and
can be calculated from the number of FPNs which is available from the
spreadsheet.

 

If you remain dissatisfied please let us know, clearly setting out your
reasons.

 

Regards,

 

FOI Team

Dear IDO

The information does not contain the monetary value of the fines that have been issued.

Can you please supply me with this information.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Jones,

 

As per the response:

 

Police Scotland issue penalty notices of £60 where they have reason to
believe there has been an offence under the regulations (the amount is
reduced to £30 if it is paid within 28 days).

 

I can further clarify that fines are not paid to Police Scotland and so we
have no record of how many were paid at each rate - or indeed not paid at
all.  The revenue goes to the Scottish Courts Service.

 

Regards,

 

FOI Team
