What is the Publication Scheme?
Under The Freedom of Information Act, West Midlands Police is obliged to create and maintain a Publication Scheme.
The aim of the Publication Scheme is to set out classes of information which are routinely made available. The West Midlands Police Publication Scheme follows the standard format for police services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as recommended by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
The scheme sets out our commitment to make certain classes of information routinely available, such as policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, annual reports and financial information.
