Enforcement Records of BBC TV License Detector Vans

Currently waiting for a response from British Broadcasting Corporation, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am filing a Freedom of Information Request to find the enforcement records of the TV Licence Detector vans.

I have seen news from various sources that your TV detector vans cannot actually detect if someone is watching television programs.

I am asking for this information to see whether public money was mismanaged on empty threats.

I await your reply.
Yours faithfully,

Isaiah R

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I would like to know the count of enforcements and prosecutions, broken down by year and region if possible.

Yours faithfully,

Isaiah R

Just to share...

... there is no need at all for you to provide this extra identification, none.

Perhaps refer the BBC to this URL :-

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/help/priv...

and the detail it holds on how WDTK.com satisfies all aspects of the FOIA and it's requirements of identification :-). They do not need your full name or address at all, the email WDTK.com uses for your request is enough :-)

In fact I would suggest you ask an admin on WDTK.com (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/help/cont...) to ask them to obscure your personal information from display on this website.

Mark.
