Dear Ministry of Justice,

Under the FOI Act I require the following information.

1. On how many occasions has Kent Magistrates Court and/or Kent County Court granted Kent County Council an Emergency Protection Order after children have been removed by Kent Police using a Police Protection Order.
I am particular interested in any Court Orders that relate to children having been removed from their families by Kent Police who have placed the children with Kent County Councils Children Services on the 7th December 2012.
The FOI request sent to kent police is listed below for your information.
(Dear Kent Police,

Under the FOI Act I require the amount of children defined by sex
and ages taken by Kent Police using a Police Protection Order on
7th December 2012 to place the children with Kent County Council
Children Services.

1. How many of these children were taken into care without Kent
County Council obtaining an Emergency Protection Order.

2. How many of these children were taken into care using a Police
Protection Order.

Protection Order on the 7th December 2012 had either of the
following Public Servants present:

and confirm that all officers have been CRB checked.

4. 'Child Act 1989' police protection powers states 7. The child is
considered to be in police protection when these powers have been

therefore should not be referred to as a police protection order.
