Freedom of Information, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner

Good afternoon Beccie,

I apologise for the late reply. We started to record the use of DVPN's and DVPO's in a centralised system that we can interrogate since April 2016. To provide information prior to this would possibly breach the cost threshold or at least be very time consuming for our officers. Would your request be satisfied by information held since April 2016?

Thank you for your patience.

Kind regards

Courtney

Freedom of Information, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner

Dear Ms Pearce

 

FOI Request Reference: 010858/16

 

Thank you for your request for information, received 30/09/2016

 

REQUEST

 

1.    The number of DVPN's issued by a superintendent rank or above in the
West Midlands Police force area

2.    The number of DVPO's granted by court in the West Midlands Police
force area

3.    The number of orders breached in the West Midlands Police force area

 

4.    If possible, I would also like to know if any of the orders were
re-granted after the 28 day time limit had ended.

5.    Finally, I would like to know the criteria in which an order or
notice would be granted.

 

 

RESPONSE

 

We are unable to provide this information within the cost threshold of the
Act. In April 2016, we introduced a marker to allocate to records which
would signify if a DVPO/DVPN was used. However, prior to this, this
information was recorded in the investigation log. To find out this
information we would have to search through all PPU investigations where
there was domestic abuse. This would breach the cost threshold of the Act.
However, please consult the remainder of the document to see what can be
provided within the cost threshold.

 

Therefore, the cost of compliance with your request is above the amount to
which we are legally required to respond, i.e. the cost of locating and
retrieving the information would exceed the appropriate costs limit under
section 12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000. For West Midlands
Police, the appropriate limit is set at £450, as prescribed by the Freedom
of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004, S.I. 3244.

 

A public authority which, in relation to any request for information, is
relying on a claim that section 12 or section 14 applies must, within the
time for complying with Section 1(1), give the applicant a notice stating
that fact. In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this
letter acts as a refusal notice.

 

However rather than refusing your request outright at this stage, I would
like to explore with you how West Midlands Police may best assist you to
request relevant information which we hold. Within the cost limit we can
locate and retrieve:

Information pertaining to questions 1, 2 and 3 for information held after
April 2016.

 

Responses to questions 4 and 5.

Please note that any located information might be subject to the
application of exemptions under the Act.

 

To enable us to proceed with your request I would be grateful if you could
confirm whether you wish us to provide the information outlined above.
After receiving your reply, your request will be considered and you will
receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days, as
defined by the Act, subject to the application of any statutory
exemptions. If you chose not to respond then your request will remain
unanswered.

 

 

For further information and data on West Midlands Police see our
publication scheme and disclosure log

 

[1]http://foi.west-midlands.police.uk/

 

Your attention is drawn to your right to request a re-examination of your
case under West Midlands Police review procedure, which can be found at:

 

[2]http://foi.west-midlands.police.uk/revie...

 

Please note that such an appeal must be received within 20 working days of
the date of this correspondence. Any such request received after this time
will only be considered at the discretion of the FOI Unit.

 

If you require any further information, then please do not hesitate to
contact me.
