Dear Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland,

Articles in the Scottish press today about the selection process
for ACCs in PSoS note that there is a list of qualifications that
were deemed to be equivalent to the SCC/PNAC accreditations
mentioned in the role advertisement and related documentation.

Whilst the individual who is named as being a conduit for this list
has now retired from the HMICS I have no doubt that it may be
needed in the years ahead for any future CC/DCC/ACC appointments.

Could I please have a copy of the list of courses that are deemed
to be equivalent to the PNAC and/or SCC accreditation

(For clarity accreditation means successfully passing said courses)

Could you please give details of the location, duration and
syllabus for each course that has been considered as a potential
equivalent together with details of those courses that were
considered to be equivalent, the date that decision was made and
the dates of any reviews of that decision?

Yours faithfully,

Mike Roulston

Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland

Dear Mr Roulston,

Thank you for your request dated 07 May 2014 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for:

We received your request on 08 May 2014 and will respond in accordance with FOISA by 06 June 2014, which is 20 working days from date of receipt.

If you have any queries, please contact [email address] quoting case number FoI/14/00768.

Dear Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland's handling of my FOI request 'Selection criteria for senior PSoS officers'.

With regard to the email exchange in 2012 I cannot believe that the issue arose "out of the blue" and the fact that it is marked "Urgent" suggests that there was a history creating that urgency.

The email exchange refers to sensitivity and personal data and you appear to be referring to potential harm in releasing the ACC report.

You do not explain what that harm might be or how it has been affected by the passage of time. This selection process is complete and as I understand it there have not been subsequent similar processes.

You make no mention of supplying the report in a redacted form to negate these issues.

Finally given that the press normally approach organisations prior to publication of such articles I find it odd that you are unable to produce any emails shortly before my request asking "What do we know about this?" within your organisation?

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

Yours faithfully,

Mike Roulston

Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland

Dear Mr Roulston,
