For the criminal convictions and linking the offences to the years and whether dismissed or resigned, we can confirm that some relevant information is held by West Midlands Police. However, we are withholding that information since it is exempt by virtue of the following exemptions.

Section 40 (2):  Personal Information

These exemptions and explanatory notes are shown here:

Section 40 (2) allows for personal data to be withheld where release would breach the third party’s data protection rights. It would be unfair to release this information where any person could be identified from the data and in this case the right to privacy outweighs any public interest in release.
