Dear Mr. Jameson,

FREEDOM of INFORMATION ACT 2000

I write in connection with your request for information dated 15th July
2019 which was received by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI)
on 15th July 2019.  I note you seek access to the following information:

PSNI Stations Designated Ref Sect 87 (1) (A) Sexual Offences Act 2003

This request will be dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. A response should be sent to you within 20 working
days however I would like to advise you that PSNI are currently
experiencing a delay in the processing of requests and we aim to respond
to your request as soon as possible.

If your request is unclear and clarification is required the 20 day
legislative time limit dictated by the Freedom of Information Act 2000
will be stopped until we receive clarification of your request. The ICO
guidance at paragraph 40 of the link below sets out that the clock begins
anew the day after the clarification is received. It states

“If the requester subsequently provides enough detail to enable the
authority to identify and locate the information, then the authority must
respond to the clarified request within a new 20 working day time limit
with the ‘clock’ starting the day after it receives the required
clarification. “

In the event where the cost of complying with the request would exceed the
“appropriate level”, which is fixed at £450, as stated in the Freedom of
Information Regulations 2004, it is the policy of the PSNI to close the
request. You will however be notified of this decision and given an
opportunity to refine and resubmit the request.

If your request requires either full or partial transference to another
public authority in order to answer your query, again, you will be
notified.

If you have any queries regarding your request please write or contact the
Freedom of Information Team on 028 9070 0164. Please remember to quote the
reference number listed above in any future communications with the
Freedom of Information Team.

If you are dissatisfied in any way with the handling of your request, you
have the right to request a review. You should do this as soon as
possible, or in any case within two months of the date of issue of this
letter. In the event that you require a review to be undertaken, you can
do so by writing to the Head of Freedom of Information, PSNI Headquarters,
65 Knock Road, Belfast, BT5 6LE or by emailing [email address]. 

If following an internal review, carried out by an independent decision
maker, you were to remain dissatisfied in any way with the handling of the
request you may make a complaint, under Section 50 of the Freedom of
Information Act, to the Information Commissioner’s Office and ask that
they investigate whether the PSNI has complied with the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act.  You can write to the Information Commissioner
at Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. In most circumstances the Information
Commissioner will not investigate a complaint unless an internal review
procedure has been carried out, however the Commissioner has the option to
investigate the matter at his discretion.

Yours sincerely,

FOI Decision Maker
FOI Unit
PSNI HQ Brooklyn

Dear Police Service of Northern Ireland,

You have failed to rspond to my request within the timescale specified by law, nor have you sought to rely on any exemption.

There is no excuse for a public bosy with a "law and order" remit to fil to comply with teh law itself.

If I do not, therefore, receive a full response to my request within SEVEN days of the date of this correspondence, I will ask th ICO to investigate and sanction the Constabulary to the highest level for your failure.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Paul Jameson

Dear Mr Jameson,

Thank you for your email.

PSNI are currently experiencing a delay in processing FOI and Data Protection requests.

The FOI and Data Protection Unit are currently dealing with a high volume of requests and this has impacted our ability to issue responses within the 20 day legislative time-frame.

Your request is currently in a queue and still to be allocated to a Decision Maker for processing.

Unfortunately, I am unable to provide you with an estimated date for response, at this stage.

I can only apologise for the delay and assure you we are processing requests as quickly as possible.

Yours sincerely

Gilbert
