Prisons Within Force Area - 209/20

Date Responded 25 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:

Please supply a list of all prisons in your policing area which you have policing responsibility for.

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.

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.

This information is freely available and can be found by simple research of the internet.

I have provided relevant link below where a response to your query can be found, however to avoid doubt I can advise there is one such establishment, HMP Northumberland
