Dear Freedom of Information,

Apologises for the lack of clarity in respect of one part of my FOI request.

I hereby clarify my FOI request as follows:

By "Sexual Contact Crimes" against Children, I mean Crimes such as Rape, Indecent Assault, Molestation of a Child or Children under 16, or Grooming of a Child or Children under 16 with evidenced or clear intent to commit Sexual Offences;

Furthermore, by "more than a handful" of Cat A or Cat B images, I mean at least 1% of the overall number of images, except where that 1% of images would be over 25 images (to wit, the total number of images was over 2,500);

The number of images for those under 1% and those over 1% would be very much appreciated, together with the percentage and associated numerical statistics for those with a moderate to very large total of overall images (to wit over 1,000 to potentially millions images.)

The more data the better, but I am conscious you have time limits and there would be a potential charge for a lot of information and research.

Of course, given sufficient statistics, I could work out the percentages for myself, but I will leave yourselves to decide whether or not you are willing to table all of the relevant numbers and percentages (I would suggest that an Excel table would work these out automatically).

Thanking you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Adrian Paul Bryan-Vince

Dear Freedom of Information,

The two links are entirely unhelpful and provide ZERO Data or Relevant Information to my FOI Request.

In view of your comments regarding Resources and Time Costings, I am hereby
significant simplifying my FOI Request as follows (I have calculated that this will
reduce the amount of Data required by around 70% - the change in the Time Period
reduces this by 60% in itself):

1. [ During 2014 ], how many people were Charged with Offences of
Possession of Child Pornography?

2. Of those Charged, how many were Convicted?

3 [ Question removed ]

4. Of those Convicted, how many were given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order
(S.H.P.O or S.O.P.O.)?

5. Of those Convicted, how many had previously been Convicted of Sexual
Contact or Grooming Crime(s) against Children Under 16?

6. Of those Convicted, how many were later Convicted of Sexual Contact or
Grooming Crime(s) against Children Under 16?

Thanking you in advance of your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Rebecca / Freedom of Information,

My Original FOI Request was made on 19 APRIL 2017.

The extended Delays are totally unacceptable.

To then Refuse to cooperate in providing a relatively small amount of Data under the Freedom of Information act is unprofessional, incompetent and wholly unacceptable.

I will now be Reporting the matter to the Information Commissioner.

Dear Freedom of Information,

I don't understand any of that waffle.

I just want you to Comply with my very significantly Reduced FOI Request under the Freedom of Information Act.

To date, you have not done so and a so-called 'Internal Review' has created nothing but verbosity and jargon.

Yours sincerely,

AdrianPaulBryanVince

AdrianPaulBryanVince

Dear Freedom of Information,

My original Request was in mid- APRIL 2017.

We are now at the end of AUGUST 2017.

To date, you have not cooperated, but rather obstructed access to Data under the Freedom of Information Act.

Totally unacceptable.

I therefore feel I have no choice but to make a Formal Complaint to the Information Commissioner.

Yours sincerely,

AdrianPaulBryanVince

AdrianPaulBryanVince

Dear Freedom of Information,

Why have you still not Complied with my FOI Request from 19th April 2017?
