Dear Police Scotland,

I make a freedom of information request.

In the years of 2014 and 2015 to date I request the following.
1. When on duty and in a police vehicle has any officer been caught speeding by a mobile safety/speed camera or a fixed safety/speed camera?
2. Has any officer been subjected to any disciplinary action in regard to being caught speeding?
The above two questions are speeding while not responding to a Emergency call.

Yours faithfully,

Gary Wilson

Good Afternoon Mr Wilson,

Having now considered your request for information, I cannot identify exactly the information you seek.

For example, do you require the number of offficers, the speeds of the vehicles and is there a specific area in which you require the information.

In order to progress your request further, I should be obliged if you could provide me with the specific information.

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act). You will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. The 20 working days will commence upon receipt of the additional information requested from you. If, however, the additional information requested has not been received by Date, I shall assume that you no longer wish to proceed with this request and will treat it as withdrawn.

Please quote Reference Number IM-FOI-2015-1226 in any future correspondence.

Regards

Dear FOI Glasgow,

I just wish to obtain figures on how many officers have been caught speeding within your force area in marked or unmarked police vehicles and as a result what action was taken.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilson

I assume you wish the information for the whole of Police Scotland? If so would you like the time period to be from the inception of Police Scotland, 1 April 2013?

Kind Regards

Dear FOI Glasgow,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes the whole of Police Scotland, and only from Jan 2014 to 2015 todate.

Yours sincerely,

Gary Wilson

Dear FOI Glasgow,

You have failed to reply to my request within the required timescale set out in law. You should have responded promptly and by 21st July 2015.

Can you please advise on my request

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilson

I have noted the contents of your e-mail, however, I would advise that the final date for response is 29 July 2015.

In this instance my colleague contacted you on 26 June 2015 to clarify exactly what information you required. When clarification is sought, the clock stops and the 20 working days restart on the next working day after receipt of the clarification. In this instance your clarification was received on 1 July 2015, the 20 working day period started again on 2 July 2015, accordingly, the statutory 20 working days expire on 29 July 2015.

Regards

You may have noticed that Police Scotland was one of the forces that refused to disclose details of occicers with crminal convictions recently. In Scotland motoring offences are counted as a crminal offence. If they give you the run around have a look at a request made in December 2014 for a similar request made by Mr Mauger to persuade them to respond properly
They answered him but that might because he is the secret Assistant Chief Constable who has been on gardening leave for most of the past 6 years
In England officers trigger the cameras and like anyone else you get a letter requesting driver details as the vehicle is effectively a company car. If you can show that the activation was for police purposes then there is an exemption in law but each case has to checked as there is speeding and speeding!

Dear Police Scotland,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Police Scotland's handling of my FOI request 'Officers Caught Speeding'.

I believe the information is accessible by other means and is certainly within the public interest to disclose the requested information. I find is amusing that such information isn't accessible when such information clearly should be.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/o...

Yours faithfully,

Gary Wilson

They went through the pile of paper files 1737 times according to this article......unlikely in the days of spreadsheets!

Break it down and ask for it in batches of 2-3 months in each foi.
