Freedom of information request

Under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000, you can request access to recorded information held about Northumbria Police.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000 was implemented on 1 January 2005. The Act aims to make organisations like the police service more accountable to the public, giving a better understanding of how public authorities carry out their duties, make their decisions and spend public money. 

Upon receipt of a request, if we don't have the information we will let you know as soon as possible.
A response will be supplied within 20 working days.

Please note that, in common with all other public authorities, where disclosure is made, Northumbria Police will publish requests and responses on the force Disclosure Log.

To help us quickly find the information you need, please:

  • keep your request simple and focused on exactly what you want to know
  • ask for specific information and documents
  • specify if your request relates to a period of time or geographical area
  • specify whether you require your data in calendar years or financial years

Please note, should you require copies of data that may be held specifically about you, please visit our Data Protection Page which provides information on how to make a subject access request.
