Police Officer Misconduct Findings 2019 - 083/20

Date Responded 19 February 2020

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

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.

You asked:

Full details of disciplinary action against police officers, including i) date, ii) allegation type, iii) allegation details, vi) outcome and v) source - for the whole of 2019

In Response:

As the information you have requested is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.

I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.

Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means

Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.

Misconduct information is published as a matter of course on the Northumbria Police website.  A simple search for Misconduct Proceedings Outcomes will bring back results.  I have provided the link to the website below for you.
