This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Devon and Cornwall Police Authority did not have the information requested.

Dear Devon and Cornwall Police Authority,

I would like to know who, in the area where I live – Bow/Spreyton or the local postcode district EX17, is a licenced keeper of a firearm (shotgun/rifle/pistol) .

I would like to know the categories of firearms, e.g. distinguishing rifles from shotguns.

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Westrip

Devon and Cornwall Police Authority

Dear Mr Westrip
Further to your request, I can confirm that the Police Authority does not hold this information. With you permission I can forward your request to the Police Force, who may be able to assist with your request.

Kind regards,

Eleanor Tanner

Dear Devon and Cornwall Police Authority,

Dear Devon and Cornwall Police Authority,

Thank you for your response, may I ask which who holds this information ?

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Westrip

Devon and Cornwall Police Authority

Dear Mr Westrip
I am sorry that I cannot answer that question. I am assuming that it is possible that this information may be held by the Police Force, hence my offer to forward your request.

Perhaps there has been some confusion about my organisation - the Devon & Cornwall Police Authority is not involved in operational policing, it is a body charged with ensuring an efficient and effective police service which it does by scrutinising police force activity.

Kind regards

Eleanor Tanner
