@ Freedom of Information, Warwickshire Police

Dear Ms Green

 

FOI REQUEST REFERENCE NUMBERS: WARWICKSHIRE 2017-00782 & WEST MERCIA
8884/17

 

I write in connection with your request for information dated 24 September
2017, received by Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police on 25
September 2017, in which you seek access to the following information:

 

1. Please supply figures for the number of dogs seized as a banned breed
type under the Dangerous Dogs Act during 2016.

 

2. Please also supply the number of dogs seized as a banned breed type who
were returned as "not type" prior to any court proceedings for the same
time period.

 

3. Please supply figures for the number of dogs seized as a banned breed
type who were found not guilty in a court for the same time period.

 

Please also supply figures for each of the above from 1 January 2017 to
1st July 2017.

 

Please be advised that information requested is not centrally recorded and
therefore not available in a readily retrievable format. The Dangerous Dog
Unit has informed us that in order to provide a response to your request
it would be necessary to examine each and every one of over 600 records
covering the stated period for the Warwickshire and West Mercia Police
Alliance.  Such searches would involve a disproportionate amount of effort
which would take us over the Fees Limit (£450), which equates to 18 hours
work at a standard rate of £25 per hour, as stated in the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004.

 

In accordance with Section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
please treat this letter as the Refusal Notice I am required to provide to
you on behalf of the Alliance. Please note that if one part of a request
exceeds the fees limit then Section 12 of the Act applies to the whole
request.

 

In accordance with Section 16 of the Act I have a duty to provide advice
and assistance; however, due to the volume of records I am unable to
advise a way to pare down your request into one which could be manageable
within the fees limit.

 

Appeal Rights

Your attention is drawn to the information below, which details your right
of appeal.

 

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please do
not hesitate to contact this office.

 

Yours sincerely
