Dear H J Wilson

 

REQUEST

1) What measures are in place to prevent officers abusing their position
by committing police resources to harass/stitch-up etc., members of the
public who have got on the wrong side of officers serving with Cheshire
Constabulary, for example, by exposing corruption/misconduct?

2) What position of seniority would an officer serving with Cheshire
Constabulary need to hold for it to be feasible for him/her to be
successful in carrying out this kind of abuse?

RESPONSE

 

There is no information held

 

Please note: due to the tone and language of the correspondence that goes
beyond the level of criticism that a public authority or its employees
should reasonably expect to receive, I cite the indicator of unfounded
accusations, as you make unsubstantiated accusations against the public
authority, indicating that such actions are routinely taking place and
actually form part of an official policy.  This request also has no
obvious intent to obtain information, owing to the tone of the request and
you clearly appear to be using FOIA to vent anger, by asking questions
tailored in a fashion that encourages the belief that the police service
conducts abusive practices.  Therefore any future requests relating to the
same or similar subject matter under the Freedom of Information Act may be
deemed and refused on the grounds of Vexatious Section 14 of the Freedom
of Information Act. 

 

If you are not satisfied with the decision applied in this case I enclose
for your attention a copy of the Constabulary's appeal procedures.

 

Regards
