Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above

Before we can start work on your request I would ask that you provide your
name as without that your request is not a valid FOI request. Please see
the Information Commissioner's website at:
[1]https://ico.org.uk/~/media/documents/lib...

Where it says:

Section 8 stipulates that a request for information must:

·         be in writing;

·         state the name of the requester and provide an address for
correspondence; and,

·         describe the information being requested.

 

I look forward to hearing from you so that we can progress your request.
If we do not hear from you within 10 working days our file will be closed

Under the Freedom of Information Act we are required to reply within 20
working days.  The Act does not specify a limit to the number of
information requests a public authority may receive or the number of
requests or questions an applicant may submit.  However, there are
exemptions in the Act that can apply and these include where the cost of
complying with the request would extend beyond the reasonable cost limit,
(currently 18 hours or £450), or if the request is otherwise manifestly
unreasonable in its scope or nature.  Requests that ask a great many
questions, or a number of detailed requests submitted at the same time,
may make it necessary for Essex Police to refuse the requests wholly or in
part.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has responsibility for
providing oversight and guidance for the legislation and they have
produced advice for applicants on submitting effective requests.  Further
information can be found on the Commissioner’s website at

can be found at:

While we process your request, please take the time to consider the ICO’s
advice and whether you feel it may be beneficial to amend or refine your
request. Our team is happy to discuss your request with you and will be
able to provide advice as to what kind of information will be available
from Essex Police.
