Dear Information Compliance West Mercia,

I would consider a patrol as any planned patrol on the streets and roads by foot and vehicular units respectively.

Yours sincerely,

Duncan Cushenan

Information Compliance West Mercia, West Mercia Police

 
Dear Mr Cushenan
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE NO: RFI 8181/17
I write in connection with your request for information which was received
on 17th February 2017.  Please find below the response to your request:
Patrols in Worcester
By month how many patrols, both on foot and in vehicles, (any planned
patrol on the streets and roads by foot and vehicular units respectively)
were made in the following years:
2015
2016
2017 (so far)
 
REPLY:  Please be advised that the information that you have requested is
not available in a readily retrievable format. Information regarding how
many patrols, both on foot and in vehicles there were in Worcester is not
held in an electronically searchable format. Relevant information may be
held in area disposition sheets or duty plans etc but these are not all
held centrally or in any electronically searchable and so it would require
a manual review of records in order for us to try and identify any
relevant information for your request. For example there are 3 disposition
sheets completed per area per day, which would equate to 2334 records to
be manually reviewed for Worcester for the time period requested.
Therefore the cost of providing you with the information is above the
amount to which we are legally required to respond i.e. the cost of
locating and retrieving the information exceeds the ‘appropriate level’ as
stated in the Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit)
Regulations 2004.
In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this letter acts
as a Refusal Notice for this request.
In accordance with Section 16 of the Act I have a duty to provide advice
and assistance in relation to your request, however due to the volume of
records that need to be reviewed I have been unable to identify
information that could be supplied within the fees limit.
has been made to ensure that the response provided is as accurate as
possible
Your attention is drawn to the below which details your right of
complaint.
Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
or telephone the Information Compliance Unit quoting the reference number
above.
Yours sincerely
