Disclosure Details

Thank you for your recent request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000.


Two duties are placed on public authorities under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). Notwithstanding applicable exemptions, the first duty at, Section 1(1) (a), is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a request is held. The second duty at, Section1 (1) (b), is to disclose information that has been confirmed as being held. Under the provisions of those sections of the FOIA, we can confirm that the information you seek is not held by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent (OPCC).


You have requested the following information in relation to the two senior police officers whose conduct hearing is due to take place in the near future:


  1. Date of Joining the Police for Both Officers


No information held


  1. Date of Due retirement of both Officers


No information held



The OPCC and Gwent Police are two separate organisations.  Police officers are employed by Gwent Police and not the OPCC, therefore we do not hold or have access to this information.  You may wish to contact Gwent Police directly to submit your request for information via the following link


The Freedom of Information Act is a public disclosure regime, not a private regime. Any information disclosed under the Act is thereafter deemed to be in the public domain, and therefore freely available to the general public and will be published on the OPCC website.


You have the right to appeal our decision if you think it is incorrect.  Should you feel dissatisfied with this response or the way in which your request was handled, information on the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent FOI Appeals Procedure can be found on our website:


If you remain dissatisfied after an internal review decision, you have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner’s Office. The Commissioner is an independent regulator whose details can be found using the following link:
