Police Vehicles

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Central Scotland Police,

I was wondering if you could publish details of all the vehicles in your Police force, and the amount of each type of vehicle you have?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 – Clarification

Thank you for your request for information received on 10th August, and
is being dealt with this in accordance with the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002.

I write to seek clarification on your request as follows:

Request : As below

Clarification Required :

Having now had the opportunity to consider your request, I regret that I
am unable to proceed with it at this time.  Section 8 of the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) requires that when making a
request for information an applicant must provide his or her real name,
together with an address for correspondence.  While the Scottish
Information Commissioner deems that an e-mail address is sufficient for
the purposes of the Act, he has issued guidance which states that an
applicant must provide his or her own real name when making a request. 
The reason for this is that any appeal to the Court of Session in Scotland
in connection with a FOISA request must be made using the true name of the
applicant and this must be the name used in the original request to the
public authority.  For ease of reference, I have provided the guidance
issued by the Commissioner below along with a link to the appropriate part
of the Commissioner’s website.

“Do I have to provide my real name and my full address when I ask for
information?

The Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and an
address for correspondence. The Commissioner has confirmed that an e-mail
address is sufficient when you are asking for information. However, if you
send your request by email, you must give your name in the body of the
email to fulfil the requirement that the name of the applicant is given.
Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g.
[email address]) you must add your name to the text of your
request, so that it is clear who the email is from.

You must give your real name, as the public authority does not have to
answer your request if you have used a false name or pseudonym. The
Commissioner will not be able to carry out an investigation if he finds
out that you have used a false name.  If you have particular reasons for
not wanting to reveal your identity to the public authority, you should
ask a friend or family member to make the request for information."

As such, I require you to provide your own full name before I can proceed
further with your request.  For the avoidance of doubt, your name must be
included in the body of your e-mail also.  It is not, as you will see from
the Commissioners guidance, sufficient to include your name in your e-mail
address. 

If you require any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me on
01786 456000 or Email: [2][email address] . However, if
you are not satisfied with the way in which your request has been handled,
you are entitled, in the first instance, to request a Review of the
decisions made. Should you wish to request a Review, please write to Chief
Inspector A McLeod, Head of Department, Professional Standards Department,
Central Scotland Police, Police Headquarters, Randolphfield, Stirling FK8
2HD within 40 working days of receiving this correspondence.

If, after receiving a response, you remain dissatisfied, you have six
months within which you may Appeal to the Scottish Information
Commissioner who can be contacted at Kinburn Castle, Doubledykes Road, St
Andrews, Fife, KY16 9DS. Phone: 01334 464610 Fax: 01334 464611 or Email
[3][email address] .

Please note : Until your clarification is received the statutory 20
working day clock has stopped and will begin once your clarification has
been received.

If you require any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me on
01786 456000 or Email: [4][email address] . However, if
you are not satisfied with the way in which your request has been handled,
you are entitled, in the first instance, to request a Review of the
