Classification: NOT PROTECTIVELY MARKED

Dear M A Jewkes,

Thank you for your request. I apologise for the delay in responding to you.

I had reviewed your request as per your email to conduct a review into the way your request was handled.

Firstly I would like to mention that a member of my team (Ian Birchill) has now responded to your request on the 12th January 2018.
This of course was 40 days approximately over the deadline. The case manager who originally was charged with dealing with your request was unable to obtain the information as this part of the business does not have a dedicated person of contact for the FOI team.
That said I apologise you were not updated as per schedule 16 of the FOI legislation.

We did however increase our resources and identify the issues that had led to this request failing to comply and as such had Ian Brichill who was able to identify the request and where the data maybe held due to his knowledge of the force.

Whereby we are not satisfied we have respond to your original request we are not satisfied with the timescale in which this took to be responded to. As such we hope that the process soft this review has highlighted the issues faced and that we are now in a position to limit this happening again.

Please again accept my apologies for the delay and do let me know if there is any further way we can assist you.

Kind Regards
