Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

you state:

"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. In some circumstances the MPS may be unable to achieve this
deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at the earliest opportunity"

you have not responded in 20 working days. You have not given me a revised time scale.

Having researched this web site it appears this is common practice. In undertaking an internal review i antcipate being told why you do not act as you state, why the police make false statements.

i have reported this to the information commissioner's office

Case Reference Number FS50299431

Dear Ms Lander,

Complaint from Mr D Mercer

The Information Commissioner has received a complaint from Mr Mercer stating that no response has been sent to an information request submitted to your organisation on 26 January 2010, which you have said was received and assigned reference 2010010004773.

Any public authority in receipt of such a request is under a duty to respond within 20 working days of receipt. As it is the case that you have not responded but acknowledged receipt of the request, we would ask that you now respond within 10 working days of receipt of this letter. We should be grateful if you could also provide a copy of your response to this office.

You should state whether or not the information is held in a recorded form. If it is held, you should either provide the information or issue a refusal notice in accordance with the requirements of section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act or regulation 14 of the Environmental Information Regulations as appropriate. You can find more information on refusal notices contained in the guidance issued by the Commissioner which is available at:

http://www.ico.gov.uk/upload/documents/l...

http://www.ico.gov.uk/upload/documents/l...

Finally you should be aware that the Information Commissioner often receives requests for copies of the letters we send and receive when dealing with casework. Not only are we obliged to deal with these in accordance with the access provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the DPA) and the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the FoIA), it is in the public interest that we are open, transparent and accountable for the work that we do.

However, whilst we want to disclose as much information as we reasonably can, there will be occasions where full disclosure would be wrong. It is also important that the disclosures we make do not undermine the confidence and trust in the Commissioner of those who correspond with him.

When you reply to this letter, I would be grateful if you would indicate whether any of the information you provide in connection with this matter is confidential, or for any other reason should not be disclosed to anyone who requests it. I should make clear that simply preferring that the information is withheld may not be enough to prevent disclosure. You should have a good reason why this information should not be disclosed to anyone else and explain this to us clearly and fully.

For further advice on how to deal with freedom of information requests, please visit our website at www.ico.gov.uk or call our helpline on 0303 123 1113.

When contacting us about this matter, please quote the case reference number from the top of this letter.

Dear Mr Mercer

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2010020005180

Further to our e-mail dated the 24/03/2010 I am now able to provide with a
response to your complaint dated 24/02/2010 concerning:

* FOIA complaint pertaining to 2010010004773.

DECISION

s.45 of the Freedom of Information Act (concerning the Codes of Practice)
provides guidance for dealing with complaints and requests for internal
reviews. Specifically, paragraph 38 of the Codes of Practice states:

"Any written reply from the applicant (including one transmitted by
electronic means) expressing dissatisfaction with an authority's response
to a request for information should be treated as a complaint… These
communications should be handled in accordance with the authority's
complaints procedure, even if, in the case of a request for information
under the general rights of access, the applicant does not expressly state
his or her desire for the authority to review its decision or its handling
of the application."

The emphasis of this paragraph is that the internal review stage of the
complaints procedure should be initiated on receiving communication from
the applicant which expresses dissatisfaction "with an authority's
response to a request for information". Therefore, an internal review
should only be instigated once a response has been received by the
applicant - I have made enquiries with the Information Commissioner's
office and confirmed that an internal review should not take place before
a response is received. In this case, only once your request has been
completed.

However, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the delay
that you are experiencing. I would like to assure you that the MPS
Information Manager has been notified that the MPS are in breach of
Section 10 of the Act, as your original request was received by the MPS on
the 26 January 2010 and by law you should have received a response by the
23rd Feb 2010. The MPS has been contacted by the Information
Commissioner's Office regarding your request (ICO Reference number
FS50299431), and further contact has been made with the Information
Manager as a result of this intervention; the MPS is currently working
with the ICO to resolve the delay.

If you are dissatisfied with the final response you receive you may then
request for an internal review.

COMPLAINT RIGHTS

If you are dissatisfied with this response please read the attached paper
entitled Complaint Rights which explains how to contact the Information
Commissioner with your complaint.

Should you have any further inquiries concerning this matter, please

quoting the reference number above.

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

Dear Mr Mercer,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2010010004773

I write in response to your request for information that was received by
the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 26 January 2010. I apologise for
the delay in responding to your request and any inconvenience caused. I
note that you seek access to the following information:

1. How often do you check on police staff to see whether they have traffic
or criminal convictions?

2. Is there an unacceptable level of traffic convictions?

3. How many police officers are currently disqualified from driving?

4. How many serving police officer or other staff have criminal
convictions?

5. What are the convictions that it is acceptable for a police staff to
have?

Following receipt of your request, I have conducted searches to locate
information relevant to your request. These searches located records
relevant to your request.

DECISION
I have disclosed the located information to you in full and refused part
of your request in accordance with Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act).

1. How often do you check on police staff to see whether they have traffic
or criminal convictions?

All police officers, police staff, special constables and non-police staff
(i.e. contractors, consultants and members of partner agencies) or any
person having unescorted access to MPS buildings or uncontrolled access to
police information are vetted prior to joining or working for the MPS.
This includes a criminal records check. This is in accordance with the MPS
Vetting Policy. Please find the internet link to this policy below.
MPS Vetting Policy
http://www.met.police.uk/foi/pdfs/polici...

Once police officers and special constables are in the employment of the
MPS, they are subject to the 'Police Officers and Special Constables
Involved in Legal Proceedings' Standard Operating Procedure. This
procedure sets out that:

"All police officers and Special Constables must report whenever they
become subject to any of the following:

* criminal proceedings either in the United Kingdom or abroad;
* a criminal investigation, irrespective of the outcome;
* a police caution;
* a summons for an offence;
* a FPN (fixed penalty notice) for an endorsable offence;
* a PND (penalty notice for disorder);
* a warning for possession of cannabis;
* an Anti Social Behaviour Order;
* a warning under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997;
* where they have accepted an offer of a Speed Awareness Course in
preference to receiving a fine and/or penalty points for a speeding
allegation"

The 'Police Staff Discipline Standard Operating Procedures' states:

"Members of staff must inform their line manager at the earliest
opportunity if they are:

* arrested or charged with a criminal offence
* issued with an adult caution
* issued with a formal warning
* issued with a Penalty Notice for Disorder (PND) or Fixed Penalty
Notice (FPN), (other than for contravention of parking restrictions)
* in receipt of a summons
* convicted of any offence
* the subject of any criminal proceedings

The above list is not exhaustive."

2. Is there an unacceptable level of traffic convictions?

The 'Police Driver and Vehicle Policy Standard Operating Procedures'
provides for circumstances where police drivers receive points upon their
licence and instances where police drivers will be relieved from driving
duties.

I have provided the relevant sections of this procedure below:

"Drivers involved in court proceedings, those receiving Fixed Penalty
Notices, Notices of Intended Prosecution and those receiving penalty
points on their DVLA driving licence are required to notify the MPS .

Seven or more points on DVLA licence

"A driver with seven or more current penalty points on their DVLA licence
will be automatically relieved from driving duties. This applies whether
the driver is trained or not."

"This should be reported to the Police Driving Standards Unit via the Safe
Driving Manager (SDM). They are not eligible for reinstatement until such
time as the number of current points falls to six or below, at which time
the Police Driving Standards Unit will contact the relevant SDM"

Inspections of DVLA licences

"To ensure that all authorised drivers in the MPS have a current driving
licence and that they have complied with the DPS policy in relation to
informing the Service of penalty points received, driving licences will be
checked on a regular basis."

"Driving licences must be checked once every twelve months. They will
normally be checked at the same time as a driver has their annual PDR if
they are an authorised driver."

It is of note that in accordance with the 'Police Officers and Special
Constables Involved in Legal Proceedings Standard Operating Procedure',
all cases will be reviewed by both the Professional Standards Champion in
the relevant Borough/MPS department and by the Directorate of Professional
Standards to establish whether disciplinary action is appropriate. With
regard to police staff, formal disciplinary action may be taken based upon
the gravity of the offence committed in accordance with the Police Staff
Discipline Standard Operating Procedures.

3. How many police officers are currently disqualified from driving?

No officers are currently disqualified from driving having received a
criminal conviction for a driving related offence.

4. How many serving police officer or other staff have criminal
convictions?

5. What are the convictions that it is acceptable for a police staff to
have?

The MPS is unable to provide the number of serving police officers and
other police staff that have criminal convictions. Whilst this information
is held by the MPS, this information is not recorded in a manner where the
information can be retrieved within the cost limit set out by the Freedom
of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004.

Please find the internet link to the Freedom of Information and Data
Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004.

Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004.
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/SI/si2004/2004324...

REASON FOR DECISION

In order to satisfy your request, a member of staff would have to
establish the number of police officers and police staff that have joined
the MPS with a criminal conviction and the number that have received a
criminal conviction whilst employed by the MPS and remained in service.

The number of police officers that have received a criminal conviction
whilst employed by the MPS and remained in service is held upon an MPS
database. It is as such, relatively straightforward to provide this
information to you. I have provided this information below from the dates
for which the information is retrievable by the MPS.

With regard to the number of police officers and police staff that have
joined the MPS with a criminal conviction, this information is held by the
MPS but it is not held upon a system where the information can be
retrieved within the cost limit set out by the Freedom of Information and
Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004.

Whilst the number of police officers and police staff recruited by the MPS
with criminal convictions or criminal records would be relatively few, in
order to accurately answer your question, a manual check of a large number
of recruitment records would have to be undertaken. This would require a
check of over 33,000 police officer records and over 14,000 police staff
records, some of which are in paper format. In addition, to establish the
number of police staff that have received a criminal conviction and
remained in service would require that a member of staff check the police
staff discipline database for police staff that have received a criminal
conviction. It would then have to be established which members of police
staff were not dismissed. Further checks would then have to be undertaken
to establish whether those persons are currently employed by the MPS.

Having considered your request, I have estimated that the time required to
collate this information in order to provide an accurate answer to your
request, would exceed the prescribed cost of a Freedom of Information Act
request. The prescribed cost for collating information in response to a
Freedom of Information Act request is currently set at 18 hours. Under
Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, a public authority is
not obliged to comply with a request for information if the authority
estimates that the cost of complying with that request would exceed the
appropriate limit. I regret, therefore, that I am unable to provide you
with this information.

Please note that the MPS, as well as all police services in England and
Wales, recruit police officers and police staff in accordance with the
Home Office standard for police recruitment. Please find the internet link
below to the 'Home Office Circular 54/2003: National Recruitment Standards
- Eligibility Criteria for Police Recruitment and Consistent Recruitment
Practices' that is relevant to your request.
Home Office Circular 54/2003: National Recruitment Standards - Eligibility
Criteria for Police Recruitment and Consistent Recruitment Practices
http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/about-us/ho...

In relation to police officers in receipt of criminal convictions
(instances where a police officer has appeared at court and has either
been found guilty or pleaded guilty), 327 police officers have received a
criminal conviction and remained in service with the MPS from 01/01/2002 -
31/01/2010. Please note 301 convictions relate to traffic related offences
of which 143 relate to speeding, 78 to driving without due care and
attention and 37 to drink drive. Please note that a large proportion of
the traffic related offences were committed whilst the officers were
off-duty.
The MPS treats each incident where the behaviour of a member of our staff
falls below the standards expected seriously and will, in each instance,
review the suitability of that member of staff, to continue to serve with
the MPS. Each case is judged upon its merits and where dismissal is deemed
inappropriate, the MPS will determine whether an alternative sanction is
justified. This review is undertaken in accordance with current
legislation and guidance. Any employee whose standard of behaviour is
proven to fall below the standards expected is robustly disciplined by the
MPS.

It is important to recognise that the MPS currently employs in excess of
33,000 police officers and 14,000 police staff. The number of police
officers and police staff convicted of a criminal offence each year
accordingly, represents a very small percentage of those officers and
staff employed by the MPS.

The MPS is committed to delivering a professional service of the highest
standard to the public and expects its employees to conduct themselves
professionally, ethically and with the utmost integrity at all times. Any
instance where the conduct of our staff brings the MPS into disrepute is
treated extremely seriously by the MPS.
