Having completed enquiries Essex Police can respond as follows:

FOI legislation is intended to promote openness and accountability in
public authorities. However, this openness relates more to information
about the authority and its workings than it does to individuals who have
been in contact with that authority. This is especially the case when the
public authority in question is a police force, as the majority of
personal information that we hold is sensitive in nature.

 

Information disclosed under FOI is effectively released to the wider world
or into the public domain. Consequently, in cases where the public request
information related to individuals, it would be very rare for a police
force to release such information under the terms of the FOI Act.
Individuals would not expect that their personal data would be disclosed
in response to a request under the FOI Act and so disclosure would breach
Article 5(1)(a) which states personal data shall be processed lawfully,
fairly and in a transparent manner to the data subject, and Article
6(1)(f) considering if a legitimate interest is being pursed, whether
confirmation is necessary to meet the legitimate interest in question and
if the interest overrides the legitimate interest fundamental rights and
freedoms of the data subject and considering the general principles of
accountability and transparency.

 

Essex Police is exempt from the duty to confirm or deny whether any
information is held under the provision of section 40(5)(b)(i) of the FOI
Act 2000 (below) and in accordance with section 17 of that Act this
correspondence must act as a refusal notice to comply with your request.

 

 

I would like all Picture, reports and correspondence in regard to the fire
in the flats in Balmoral Road(Grampian 9th floor) on Saturday 7 May 2016.

 

The duty to confirm or deny does not arise in relation to other
information if or to the extent that any of the following applies—

(a)giving a member of the public the confirmation or denial that would
have to be given to comply with section 1(1)(a)—

(i)would (apart from this Act) contravene any of the data protection
principles, or

(ii)would do so if the exemptions in section 24(1) of the Data Protection
Act 2018 (manual unstructured data held by public authorities) were
disregarded;

(b)giving a member of the public the confirmation or denial that would
have to be given to comply with section 1(1)(a) would (apart from this
Act) contravene Article 21 of the GDPR (general processing: right to
object to processing);

Please note that this is a standard response that would be issued on
receipt of any FOI request that could relate to an individual and this
response should not be taken to infer that information is held that
relates to this request

 

Thank you for your interest in Essex Police.

 

 

Kind regards,
