Urgent help needed from Northamptonshire Police

The request was partially successful.

Dear Northamptonshire Police,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my queries as specifically as possible.

For your infomation, I am making the same request to all police forces in England, Wales and Scotland. This is for future coverage of police funding issues on ITV News.

I would like you to provide a response to the following questions:

1. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2014?

2. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2013?

3. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2012?

4. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2011?

5. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2010?

6. How many times did the force call in mutual aid requests from other forces during 2009?

7. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2014?
8. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2013?
9. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2012?
10. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2011?
11. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2010?
12. How many times did the force positively respond to mutual aid requests from other forces during 2009?

My preferred format to receive this information is via email.

Should you determine that my request is not sufficiently clear, then please email and advise me on how it can be best rephrased and resubmitted.

If you have concerns that my request would cost too much to investigate or take too long to answer then please inform me that is the case at the earliest opportunity so I can take appropriate action.

If my request is denied, I ask that you justify this with reference to specific exemptions of the Act. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as outlined by the statute.

Regards,
