Response

Under section 21 of the Act, we are not required to provide information in response to a request if it is already reasonably accessible to you. The information you requested is available on the West Midlands Police website via the Local Policing Unit links:

Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act places two duties on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at s1(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a request is held.  The second duty at s1(1)(b) is to disclose information that has been confirmed as being held. Where exemptions are relied upon section 17 of the Act requires that we provide the applicant with a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption applies. In accordance with the Act, this letter represents a Refusal Notice for this particular request. The information is exempt by virtue of the Section 21 (1). This exemption and explanatory notes are shown here:
