Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

Dear Mr Collyer,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2013080001779

I write in response to your request for information that was received by
the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 17 August 2013. I note that you
seek access to the following information:

"Further to my request Freedom of Information Request Reference No:
2013070000455, please could you state what information is available about
this incident and what information is available on the police civil staff
involved.
What suspensions were made and what were their job descriptions?
What items were found?
What was the conclusion of the investigation?
What report was made from the investigation?"

On 08 August 2013, I wrote to you and confirmed that searches had been
conducted at the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS), Record
Management Branch (the department responsible for the retention of
recorded files within the MPS) and the Directorate of Media and
Communication (DMC). The searches with the DMC located a number of press
lines that were disclosed to you. The searches at the DPS and Records
Management Branch failed to locate information relevant to your request. I
further explained that owing to the time that had elapsed since the
investigation into this incident, any files relevant to this case would
have been destroyed in accordance with the MPS disposal schedule.
Disciplinary investigation files are destroyed 6 years after the
conclusion of the investigation.

Unfortunately, with the exception of the press lines that have already
been disclosed to you, the MPS no longer holds any record of this
investigation and cannot accordingly address your request for information.
In accordance with Section 1(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(the duty to confirm whether information is held), this email confirms
that the requested information is not held by the MPS.

COMPLAINT RIGHTS

Your attention is drawn to the attached sheet which details your right of
complaint.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
or contact Damion Baird on telephone number 0207 161 6510 quoting the
reference number above.

Yours sincerely

Damion Baird
