Dear FOI,

I feel like we aren't communicating well because I am still not receiving all of the information that I am looking for.

I would like to know the names of police stations that are currently active or reserve with custody suites and the number of custody suites in those stations.

While some of the information I have requested has been in the links you have provided it is by no means the answer to my question.

Yours sincerely,

Jessica Branch

Dear South Yorkshire Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of South Yorkshire Police's handling of my FOI request 'Police Stations and Custody Suites'.

I have asked repeatedly for an updated list of police stations with custody suites. Initially I was given information with links that did not work. I have since consistently been pointed in the direction of old information. While I understand that the information may not have changed the point of a freedom of information request is to be given updated information. If the information has not changed surely it would be very easy for the FOI officer to update the information and provide it to me.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

Yours faithfully,

Jessica Branch
