Vehicle Allocation - Chief Officer Group

The request was partially successful.

Geoffrey Goodfellow

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

I request the below information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:-

1.) The make, model and specification (full specification from the purchase) of each vehicle allocated to each member of police staff and police officer making up the Chief Officer Group.
2.) The cost of purchase for each vehicle and the date of purchase
3.) Confirm or negate whether each vehicle is equipped with emergency lighting and audible equipment
4.) The current police driving qualification (standard / response / advanced) of each member of police staff and officer that makes up Chief Officer Group together with the date that the said member passed their driving qualification or indeed the last date they were reassessed against the requirements of the driving qualification
5.) The most common marked police vehicle currently in use by your force
6.) The cost (average cost if necessary) for the purchase of the most commonly purchased vehicle as per question 5.

I am conscious that claim may be laid with regards to exemptions being available in respect of my questions relating to costings under Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (Commercial Interests). Nonetheless, I would like to reassure you that other forces have provided this information and I would ask that, should you consider applying this exemption, you consider carefully the difference between 'commercial interests' and 'financial interests' as I do not feel the release of such information would indeed prejudice any further commercial interests but simply allow your force to be accountable with regards to the expenditure of public finances.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Geoffrey Goodfellow

Devon and Cornwall Constabulary

Good morning,

With regards to my request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, some other forces have asked me to clarify point 3 in relation to "emergency lighting and audible equipment". Just for sake of clarity, by this, I am referring to sirens and klaxons whether they be overt or covert.

Yours sincerely,

Geoffrey Goodfellow

Devon and Cornwall Constabulary
