Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Covid 19 Breaches (599A/20)

Request

How many reported coronavirus lockdown legislation breaches did the force receive between:

  1. 16th May 2020 and 22nd May 2020 (inclusive)
  2. 23rd May 2020 and 29th May 2020 (inclusive),
  3. Can you provide the alleged breach for each report please?

Response

Our data are not organised in such a way as to allow us to provide this information within the appropriate (cost) limit within the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act (see ‘Reason for Decision’ below).

Although excess cost removes the force’s obligations under the Freedom of Information Act, as a gesture of goodwill I have supplied information, relative to your request, retrieved before it was realised that the fees limit would be exceeded (see enclosed document). I trust this is helpful, but it does not affect our legal right to rely on the fees regulations for the remainder of the request.

  1. 16th May 2020 and 22nd May 2020 (inclusive) = 1544
  2. 23rd May 2020 and 29th May 2020 (inclusive) =  19993.
  3. Can you provide the alleged breach for each report please?  = Exceeds Cost 18 hours
