Dear Mr Willis,
Information Request – reference no. DC1228
Thank you for your information request dated 9^th December, which has been
dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).
Please note: Dorset Council was created from 1^st April 2019 covering the
areas/services of the following former councils – Dorset County Council,
East Dorset District Council, Dorset Councils Partnership (made up of
North Dorset District Council, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth &
Portland Borough Council) and Purbeck District Council.
Dorset Council’s response to your request is below, and you will not
receive separate responses from the former councils.
Dorset Council, of which the Dorset Police and Crime Panel is a part, does
not hold any information on homophobic attacks or attacks on drag queens.
You would therefore need to submit your request to Dorset Police as
they would hold this information.
You may wish to know that you can submit requests to Dorset Council via
our e-form at
If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you may ask
for an internal review. Please email [email address] or
write to FOI Team, County Hall, Colliton Park, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1XJ
if you wish to request a review. If you are not content with the outcome
of the internal review, you then have the right to apply directly to the
Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can
be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
The copyright in any information provided may belong to another person and
is protected under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988. Although
this does not stop us from copying information to you, it means that
unless the Act allows you to copy the information, you must not copy it
without the permission of the person who owns the copyright.
