Dear Kent Police,

Please supply me with officer and staff conviction data broken down as follows:
The number of staff and officer convictions, for the years of 2008 and 2018 (Jan 1 - Dec 31 of both years) listed by the year of conviction, the offence and the outcome.

If your records do not go back as far as 2008 then I will accept the earliest year you have records for after 2008 and 2018 (the years between are not being requested).

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Elliott

Dear Mr Elliot,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF 19/09/1371

 

Thank you for your request received by Kent Police on 16^th September
2019. I note you seek access, in summary, to information relating to:

 

Officer and Staff conviction data

 

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) provides that a public
authority respond to an FOI request within 20 working days. Please be
aware that as well as experiencing very high request volumes, Kent Police
is currently in the process of transitioning to a new crime recording
database. This means that whilst we will endeavour to complete your
request as soon as possible it is likely that a response may well be
delayed, particularly where crime data is sought.

 

Your interest in Kent Police is appreciated and pending a specific
response to your request, I enclose a sheet, which summarises your rights.
Should you have any further inquiries concerning this matter, please write

Dear Freedom of Information Kent,

Please note that this request is not in regards to convictions of staff and officers either before or after their employment with the force, and is only for staff and officers who were convicted while still in employment by the force at the time, even if they were on suspension at the time.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Elliott

Dear Freedom of Information Kent,

Section 10(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 states that:
Subject to subsections (2) and (3), a public authority must comply with section 1(1) promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt.

Since the time frame set out in the FoI Act 2000 has been exceeded, and Section 50(1) of the FoI Act 2000 states that:
Any person (in this section referred to as “the complainant”) may apply to the Commissioner for a decision whether, in any specified respect, a request for information made by the complainant to a public authority has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of Part I.

I am therefore writing to you to remind you of this obligation and give you the further opportunity to complete my request by way of internal review, else I will have to take the failure to adhere to the FoI Act 2000 to the ICO.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Elliott
