Dear Mr Rawle,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information regarding the above,
which has been passed to me for attention and reply. Please note that this
organisation does not respond to FOI requests, as the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (“the Act”) does not apply to us. This is because:

 

(1) neither York Minster nor the Minster’s governing body (the Chapter of
York) is a “public authority” as defined by Schedule 1 of the Act, and

 

(2) with reference to Schedule 1 Paragraph 64 of the Act, this is not an
organisation that “by virtue of any enactment has the function of
nominating individuals who may be appointed as Special Constables”. York
Minster’s Cathedral Constables are nominated for appointment on a common
law, not a statutory, basis.

 

“York Minster Police” is simply the name that we use for York Minster’s
in-house security team – it is not a part of the national policing
service. The territorial police force that is responsible for the
investigation of all crime and for responding to all 101/999 Police calls
in all parts of the City of York is North Yorkshire Police.

 

The York Minster Police team is employed by the Chapter of York to provide
a security service within the Minster and property owned by Chapter in the
adjacent Minster Precinct – which it does by agreement with, and subject
to the primacy of, North Yorkshire Police. North Yorkshire Police retains
full statutory authority and responsibility for maintaining a policing
service throughout the whole of the City of York, including all parts of
the Minster Precinct.

 

I hope that this clarification is helpful to you.

 

Regards,

 

Andy Oates
