As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.
Please could you provide me with any data that you hold on the number of police officers that have any convictions relating to the possession or sale of Cannabis or have received a disciplinary from the force for any Cannabis related offence in your area.
I would like this information for the last two full years and for this year so far please.
Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Professional Standards Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.
In the time period no police officers were convicted of offences relating to the possession or sale of Cannabis nor have any received a disciplinary ruling from the force for any Cannabis related offence.
