Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)'s handling of my FOI request 'Prevent Tragedies and associated materials'.

A copy of this request was also sent to the NPCC, who replied with a document retrieved from the MPS, stating that "The NPCC does not hold information captured by your request. As stated in your previous response dated 28/10/2019, this campaign was developed by ACPO TAM in partnership with other stakeholders and has not been in existence for many years. ACPO was superseded by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC). The NPCC are subject to the Managing of Police Information (MoPI).

In wishing to assist you, I have procured a document from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS). I wish to stress that the NPCC have no lawful obligation to retrieve information from another stakeholder. The attached information is a Counter Terrorism 2014/15 Communications Campaign – Revised Creative and Media Brief. This document details procurement, background and purpose of the campaign. This document is not protectively marked and confirms that it is suitable for publication."

The document itself makes it clear that the MPS was involved in the development of this campaign, one of the authors being Vicqui Viney, Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

I would therefore ask you to run the searches requested in the FOI.

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,

Sam Andrews
