Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Smoking In Cars (759_16)


I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
I would like to know:
How many fixed penalty notices (FPNs) has your force issued between October 1, 2015, and January 1, 2016, for smoking in a private vehicle with children present?
Details of each FPN – including date and time and location issued – if this doesn’t bring the request over the cost limit
The age and gender of those receiving FPNs in each instance and, if recorded, the ages of the children in the vehicle
How many of these FPNs were paid and how many opted to attend court


I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police.
