RESPONSE

 

Please find attached our response.

 

West Midlands Police will neither confirm nor deny the existence of any
relevant data by virtue of the Section 40 (5) (Personal data)

 

This exemption and explanatory notes is shown here:

 

[1]https://www.app.college.police.uk/app-co...

 

Section 40 (5) is an absolute and class based exemption if to confirm or
deny that the information exists would breach the third party’s data
protection rights.  In this case to confirm or deny the existence of
personal information would not constitute fair processing of the data and
therefore would breach the first of the principles within the Data
Protection Act 1998. As this exemption is class based I am not required to
identify the harm in disclosure and in this instance I believe that the
right to privacy outweighs any public interest in release.

 

No inference can be taken from this refusal that the information you have
requested does or does not exist.

 

As recommended as good practice by the Information Commissioner’s Office a
version of this response may be published on the West Midlands Police
website.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

RIGHT OF APPEAL

 

Your attention is drawn to your right to request a re-examination of your
case under West Midlands Police review procedure, which can be found at:

Please note that such an appeal must be received within 20 working days of
the date of this correspondence. Any such request received after this time
will only be considered at the discretion of the FOI Unit.

 

If you require any further information, then please do not hesitate to
contact me.

Dear West Midlands Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of West Midlands Police's handling of my FOI request 'Police complaints staff'.

The Freedom of Information Act was passed on 30 November 2000. It creates a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by most UK public authorities, including the Met. It also sets out exemptions and places a number of obligations on those public authorities. Find out more below about the Freedom of Information Act, Environmental Information Regulations, our obligations and your rights
we have a right for this information, please provide this information.
