Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Hurlstone

Thank you for your request for information, received 11 February 2019

The Freedom of Information Act is not the most appropriate way for you to request this information. To obtain your own personal data you should make a Subject Access request under the Data Protection Act.

Therefore I have forwarded your email to the Civil Disclosure Unit who deal with Subject Access requests. They will be in contact with you shortly. Their contact details are:

[email address]

Please note that proof of identification is required and exemptions may apply to the information.

Further information about Data Protection is shown here:


As you have made a request under the Freedom of Information Act we are obliged to response under that Act. This piece of legislation places a number of legal constraints upon the way in which I can respond. Importantly, the FOIA does not allow private right of access to data, it is designed to place information into the public domain (i.e. publish it to everyone). That is, once access to information is granted to one person under the Act, it is then considered public information and must be communicated to any individual should a request be received. In practice this means that a response to a Freedom of Information request is not a response to you as an individual but is a response to everyone.


West Midlands Police will neither confirm nor deny that we hold any of the requested information. Your request is for your own information and, as such, if any information exists it would be exempt by virtue of Section 40 (5A) of the Freedom of Information Act. Section 40 (5A) of the Act relieves us of the duty to confirm or deny that we hold any relevant data. Section 40 (5A) is an absolute and class based exemption which means that there is no need to undertake a public interest test.

Section 40 of The Freedom of Information Act is shown here:


In line with the above, a person’s request for their own data should be dealt with as a Data Protection Act subject access request. This is why I have forwarded your request to the Civil Disclosure Unit.

Further information about Data Protection, Subject Access and requesting your own data is provided in the ‘Additional Information’ section below.

No inference can be taken from this refusal that the information you have requested does or does not exist.


Subject Access

Requests for information about the requester are classified as subject access requests under the Data Protection Act 2018.

Therefore anyone who wants to know what information (if any) West Midlands Police holds about them can make a subject access request. Details on how to do this are contained within “The right of access” part of this page:


Please note that proof of identification is required and exemptions may apply to the information.

Please note that such an appeal must be received within 40 working days of the date of this correspondence. Any such request received after this time will only be considered at the discretion of the FOI Unit.

Data Protection,

Good Morning,

It appears that your request is a Subject Access Request not an FOI request. Before we can deal with your request, you are required to provide 2 copies of ID. Please see below for the address to send the ID to or alternatively you can send it to this email address.

A Subject Access Request does not give access to documentation but only information. You are only entitled to receive data belonging to yourself, you are not entitled to third party information. The law requires that details of any personal data held about you on Police Information systems must be supplied to yourself within 1 month of the receipt of a request. This period cannot start until you have provided the necessary information.

Please can you also confirm how you would like to receive your response, where this would be via post or via email?

Please can you confirm the information that you are requesting and also provide details of the incident that you are referring to such as date and location?

Where documents are required for any form of civil matter including civil legal proceedings and immigration matters the request will need to be made to the Civil Disclosure Unit and the normal West Midlands Police fees and charges will apply. The fees and charges can be found on the West Midlands Police website.

To obtain a copy of a Crime report, there is a fee of £96.50 per report, we would not accept payment by cash and would encourage payment by either postal order or cheque. The payment must be made payable to 'PCC for West Midlands', with a covering letter providing your full details including address and providing details of what you are requesting.

The postal address is West Midlands Police, Compliance and Disclosure Unit, Lloyd House, Colmore Circus, Queensway, Birmingham, B4 6NQ.

I trust the above information is of assistance to you.

Kind Regards,

R. Gandham (58724)
Disclosure Officer - Data Protection Unit Information Services Department, West Midlands Police To report crime and anti-social behaviour which does not require an emergency response please call 101. In an emergency call 999.
