Part C

When did the Northumbria Police Firearms Support Unit was created? (Date
or Year) When did Northumbria Police had Armed Response Vehicles? (Date or
Year)

 

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I
provide a response for your attention.

 

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with both the
Fleet and People Services Departments of Northumbria Police.  I can
confirm that the information you have requested is held, in part, by
Northumbria Police.

 

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

 

No information held regarding vehicles in use between 1990-2005.  Records
are not retained that far back as there is no requirement to do so.  We do
have records from 2009 onwards, However, we would advise should you wish
to submit a new request for more recent information that you are mindful
of the amount of data and number of years you are requesting in order to
hopefully prevent the application of suitable exemption(s) under the Act
ie Section 12.

 

The Firearms Support Unit (FSU) was created in 2011, prior to that it was
known as the Central Support Unit which was formed in 1997, and prior to
that there were ARV duty crews and retained AFOs who were called in from
Area Command when needed.

 

 

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a
specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an
indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another.
Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the
procedures used locally in capturing the data. For this reason responses
between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative
purposes.

 

The information we have supplied to you is likely to contain intellectual
property rights of Northumbria Police. Your use of the information must be
strictly in accordance with the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as
amended) or such other applicable legislation. In particular, you must not
re-use this information for any commercial purpose.

 

You may be interested to know that Northumbria Police routinely publish
information via the Disclosure Log. The aim of the Disclosure Log is to
promote openness and transparency by voluntarily placing information into
the public arena.

 

The Disclosure Log contains copies of some of the information that has
been disclosed by Northumbria Police in response to requests made under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Whilst it is not possible to publish all responses we will endeavour to
publish those where we feel that the information disclosed is in the wider
public interest.

 

The Disclosure Log will be updated once responses have been sent to the
requester.

 

I have provided the relevant link below.

How to complain

 

If you are unhappy with our decision or do not consider that we have
handled your request properly and we are unable to resolve this issue
informally, you are entitled to make a formal complaint to us under our
complaints procedure, attached.

 

If you are still unhappy after we have investigated your complaint and
reported to you the outcome, you may complain directly to the Information
Commissioner’s Office and request that they investigate to ascertain
whether we have dealt with your request in accordance with the Act.

 

Yours sincerely
