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:

1.Please provide me with a link to the url on your website to the document known as the Scheme of Delegation pursuant to paragraph 13.25 of the IOPC Statutory Guidance.

2,Also please provide me a copy of this document dating from from January 2012

In Response:

  1. With regards to point 1.

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.

A simple search of the Northumbria Police website for Delegated Authority will take you to this document
