The request was successful.

Dear Warwickshire Police,

I hope all is well. I am making a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act. I would like to have a set of specific, discrete data, please.

I would like to know what, if any, PND Educational ('PND-E') Courses you provide? It may assist you to note that the power to establish a PND-E scheme is provided by s2A Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 as amended by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012. A penalty notice with an education option (“PND-E”) provides a person with the opportunity to discharge their liability to be convicted of the penalty offence by paying for and completing an educational course that relates to the penalty offence.

Yours faithfully,

Radha Baan
