Paul Ponting (Account suspended)

Dear Cumbria Constabulary,

If a police officer resigns from the police during a time when a complaint is open against them or involves them, what are the legal guidelines about them being held to account?

I understand the law was changed to stop officers leaving or to hold them to account after they leave. Please can you provide me with details about such policies including the dates of implementation.

Please can you also provide me with legal guidelines or policies including data protection policies for any police officer that leaves the force to, in any way retain ANY information relating to previous victims of crime or complainants during the time they were a serving police officer.

This includes victims names, addresses, contact details, details of references to past complaints, crimes or reference numbers.

Please can you tell me the process for reporting any ex police officer for holding any such information.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act. In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me via email and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Ponting

Dear Paul Ponting

 

I am emailing you with regards to your Freedom of Information request
dated 30/11/2018

 

I would like to apologise for not responding to this request within the
time period specified by the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this is due
to a high volume of requests for information provided.

 

As a priority we are taking active steps to resolve the issues and respond
to requests for information timely. However, given the time that has
elapsed since you submitted your request, I am writing to enquire whether
the information you have requested is still required. 

 

If you do still require a response to your request, I would be grateful if
you could reply to this email within 10 days confirming this is the case. 
Upon receipt of your response we will endeavour to respond to your request
as quickly as possible. 

 

If, however, you no longer require a response you do not need to reply to
this email and if I haven’t heard from you within 10 days, I will assume a

Once again I apologise for the delay.

 

Yours sincerely,
