David Cinzano made this Freedom of Information request to Cleveland Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for David Cinzano to read a recent response and update the status.

1. Please provide the figures for how many (i) police officers and (ii) police staff you employed each year from 2000 until 2015.

2. Please provide a break down to show how many police officers you employed at each rank (i.e. constable, sergeant, inspector, chief inspector, superintendent, chief superintendent - chief police officer ranks can be collected together in a single category) at each year.

3. Please further provide a break down for each year to show how many police officers at each rank were (i) in the uniformed branch and (ii) how many were detectives.

Note: I appreciate that there will be staffing fluctuations throughout each year, long term absences, parental leave, full-time equivalent issues etc, so please feel free to use your judgement in defining when such a personnel snapshot should be taken - though it would be preferred that such figures reflect approximate one-year gaps between them (e.g. if 2000 figures captured at 1st March 2000 then 2001 figures captured at 1st April 2001 world be fine, but at 31st December 2001 less so).

Many thanks,

David Cinzano

Dear Mr Cinzano,

Enquiry Ref: 2018/9614

I write in response to your e-mail request dated 11th April 2018 in which was received by this office on 12th April 2018. I note you seek access to below information;

1. Please provide the figures for how many (i) police officers and (ii) police staff you employed each year from 2000 until 2015.

2. Please provide a break down to show how many police officers you employed at each rank (i.e. constable, sergeant, inspector, chief inspector, superintendent, chief superintendent - chief police officer ranks can be collected together in a single category) at each year.

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section 1 (1) (a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a request is held. The second duty at Section 1(1) (b) is to disclose information that has been confirmed as being held. Where exemptions are relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption applies

Notice of Non-Disclosure:
I am not disclosing the above requested information pursuant to the exemption provisions of Section 21(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Section 21 of the Act (Information Reasonably Accessible by Other Means) states that information is exempt information if it is reasonably accessible to the applicant otherwise than under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Section 21 is an absolute exemption and where information falls within the scope of an absolute exemption, a public authority is not obliged to communicate it to an applicant and is also not obliged to comply with the duty to confirm or deny the existence of the information requested.

The information relative to questions 1 and 2 is published data and is available via the below links: The first link has data from the year
2010 up to 2017 and the second link has the archived data prior to 2010.

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this letter represents a Refusal Notice for this particular request.

3. Please further provide a break down for each year to show how many police officers at each rank were (i) in the uniformed branch and (ii) how many were detectives.
a. We are unable to provide you with this data as it is not routinely recorded and there is no requirement under the Act to create data so my answer to this question must be no information held.

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response you receive.

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be evidenced.

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office on 01642 306825 or 01642 306832.

Yours sincerely,
