Dear requester

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Section 8(b) states that a request is only valid if it 'states the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence'.

Thames Valley Police has reason to believe the name provided may not be genuine. I would therefore request that you provide evidence that this is your true name.

I have placed the request on hold pending this evidence. If I do not receive such evidence within a month of this date, I will cancel the request as invalid.
