Police Information Notices.

We're waiting for Louise to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Merseyside Police,

Can you please provide me with information on the following. In relation to PINs notices:

1: As PINs are no longer issued. Can you please provide me with: How long records of previously issued PINs are held on record?

2: In the case of previously issued PINs notices before changes were made. Did Merseyside police store these records on local records or the PNC?

3: Where it can be proven that allegations were made maliciously. Can you please provide information on how to get possible local records deleted and if necessary PNC?

Background: A PINs noticed was issued before Merseyside ceased to use this method of disposing harassment allegations. The officers issued a PIN after, the accused presented evidence to the officers showing them complaint was made maliciously.(once such example giving police the wrong phone number of the accused) Phone records, CCtv, text messages can show that the allegations were entirely - false. When asked how to challenge a PIN - no information was provided from the presenting officer.

Yours faithfully,

Louise M.

Freedom Of Information, Merseyside Police

 

Dear Louise

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning PIN’s notices
which was received by Merseyside Police yesterday, 13/06/2019.  This has
been allocated the local case reference number CC2019/0809.

 

I note that you have not provided Merseyside Police with your full name. 
Although FOI is generally considered to be “applicant blind”, Section
8(1)(b) of the Freedom Of Information Act states that, in order to be
considered valid, a Freedom of Information request should include “the
name of the applicant.”  The Information Commissioner’s Office has
interpreted this as meaning the real, full name of the applicant should be
used when requesting information and not any other name, for example, a
pseudonym.  This is because the applicant’s identity may be relevant when
considering the use of Section 12(4) or Section 14 FOI Act, for example.

 

Therefore, in order for your application to be processed, may I
respectfully ask that you provide us with your surname.  As soon as this
is received we will proceed with your application until such time this FOI
request will be suspended.

 

Yours sincerely
