Dear West Yorkshire Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of West Yorkshire Police's handling of my FOI request 'SOA 2003 s.96b Warrant Statistics'.

I quote: "The search warrants requested are not easily extractable and would require a manual review of all
occurrences relating to Registered Sex Offenders (RSOs). West Yorkshire Police currently have 3,072
RSO’s in the community. At an estimate of 3 minutes per occurrence this would take 153 hours."

The number of RSOs registered is irrelevant as it does not equate to the number of SOA2003 96b occurrences, as well as being a transient figure. The maths is flawed.

Try again.

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,

Tim Walters
