Threat To Life (763A/20)


Please can you provide the most recent copy of your policy and procedure in relation to Threats to Life (including Osman Warnings and Disruption Notices).


We can confirm that some relevant information is held by West Midlands Police. However, while the majority of the information is attached to this email I am afraid that I am not required to release all of the information requested. Please find attached a redacted document.

Please note: West Midlands Police no longer have a Threats to Life Policy, however we do have internal guidance and the force also follows ACPO (2013) National Threats to Life Guidelines – although this document is only available to authorised users.


The redacted information is exempt by virtue of the following exemption:

Section 31 (1) (a) (b) (c) (Law enforcement)

These exemptions and explanatory notes are shown here:

In line with the above, I am required to complete a Prejudice Test/Public Interest Test (PIT) on disclosure. Please find this PIT attached [763A_PIT_01].
