Dear Durham Constabulary,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the first names of anyone charged with a crime within the 2019/2020 financial year. Specifically, I would like the first, given name of people charged within your police force area during this time period.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or require further clarification.

Yours faithfully,

Katie Swann

Freedom of Information,

 

Good morning

 

I am emailing in respect of your Freedom of Information Request below:

 

·        I would like to request the first names of anyone charged with a
crime within the 2019/2020 financial year. Specifically, I would like the
first, given name of people charged within your police force area during
this time period.

               Please let me know if you have any further questions or
require further clarification.

 

Bearing in mind the immense pressures under which police forces are
operating and the significant additional burdens being placed on law
enforcement organisations in the current policing environment, I should be
most grateful if you could provide me with a rationale as to why the
information you have requested is required, please.

 

At first glance, it would appear there is no serious value to your request
and before I approach a business area which is already struggling with
large volumes of day-to-day activities, I would respectfully request that
you explain the reasons why you require this information and the purpose
for which it will be used.

 

I should stress that under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act,
you are not required to provide details of your motivation for making a
request but it would assist me grateful in my efforts to provide
justification internally if you could supply me with additional context
and explanation.

 

 

Many thanks and best wishes
