Dear B Treloar,

 

I write in connection with your Freedom of Information request, which was
received by Devon & Cornwall Police on 26^th July 2023.  I note you are
requesting information concerning seized dogs.

 

It has been some time since your request was submitted, and it appears it
has not been processed in line with the Act and responded to as required
under the stated timescales.  For this I sincerely apologise, and
appreciate the frustration this may have caused. 

 

My intention in writing to you is to ask whether you still require a
response to your request, as the FOI Team continue to work through all
identified requests that have not been answered.  If however you no longer
require a response to this request, I would be grateful if you could
confirm by return of this email.  All unresolved cases are being worked
through as quickly as possible. 

 

If we haven’t heard back from you by 22^nd December 2023 we will consider
the request closed

 

I once again apologise for the significant delays, and ask for your
understanding as we work through a number of outstanding cases.  I
appreciate this situation is not acceptable, and we are also working to
improve processes and staffing levels for the future. 

 

If you wish to discuss at all, please feel free to contact me. 

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

 

Alliance Freedom of Information Officer
