as the total number of staff who are eligible to have a Disclosure and
Barring Service criminal record check.

 

Of this total number of staff who are eligible to have a DBS check, how

These figures are not by LCC headcount but by LCC occupied positions so
that we can reflect the true DBS requirements.
The DBS status shows the count of how many post holders hold a DBS record
on our system for that DBS type.

I trust that this response is satisfactory. If however you are
dissatisfied with this response you have a right to appeal to an
independent officer within the council. They will re-examine your request
and assess whether we have adhered to the requirements of the act. Should
you wish to follow this course of action please address your concerns in
writing to the above address.

 

You also have a right under Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act
to ask the Information Commissioner to decide whether we have met with our
obligations under the act.  The Commissioner has however made it clear
that she expects all applicants to exhaust internal appeals procedures
prior to making such an application. Should you wish to contact the
Commissioner’s office then you can write to the following address:

 

Office of the Information Commissioner,

Wycliffe House,

Water Lane,

Wilmslow,

Cheshire,

SK9 5AF.

You may also contact the Commissioner via her website at [1]www.ico.org.uk

 

I trust that this is self-explanatory.  If you have any queries please
contact me using the contact information above.

 

Yours sincerely
