Dear South Yorkshire Police,
Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act (2000), could you please provide me information regarding current police policy that authorises the release of evidence to commercial companies as instructed by legal clients in defence cases.
Can you please provide documentation of your forces policy relating to the release of (i) digital forensic images (covering evidential computer devices such as hard disk drives and memory cards), and (ii) physical digital devices, covering evidential items such as smartphones and satellite navigation devices.
Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated
Dear Mr Haslett
Please find attached our response to your Freedom of Information request.
I apologise for the delay in getting this response to you. I have been
waiting for various departments to get back to me.
