Dear Police Scotland,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Police Scotland's refusal and handling of my FOI requests:

IM-FOI-2018-0010, IM-FOI-2018-0011, IM-FOI-2018-0012, IM-FOI-2018-0013, IM-FOI-2018-0014, IM-FOI-2018-0015, IM-FOI-2018-0061, IM-FOI-2018-0062, IM-FOI-2018-0063, IM-FOI-2018-0064, IM-FOI-2018-0065.

Disclosure of this data is in the public interest and would simply show that the safety cameras are working.

The disclosure of this data would not pose a health and safety risk to the public, nor would it cause vandalism of cameras as their locations are publicly available online.

It would not be possible to determine the enforcement regime and guess when a camera will be live by the release and analysis of this data. However if required, I’m prepared to redact the requirement to list quarterly, and I’m happy to receive each camera data as complete 12 month figures.

This data has been released before and rather than compromise operational effectiveness, it highlighted both the use and locations of cameras.

Police Scotland is clear that cameras are there to deter speeding and so highlighting their use and location supports that policy.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Cutler
