Dear Dorset Police,

I am writing to obtain documents and emails pertaining to the Shanaz Network.

A report ( indicated that Shanaz operated in the across the UK, and that a national guidance document on Shanaz was created and distributed to all police forces. This was a 'best practice' document. A previous request ( indicated that persons working on Shanaz used their own force's computers and systems, and not a centralised one.

Please send me a copy of this document, and any documents related to the Shanaz network held on your computers.

The article also indicated that regular reports were sent regarding Shanaz.

Please send me a copy of any reports sent or received regarding the Shanaz network.

Yours faithfully,

Sam Andrews
