The Freedom of Information Act 2000(the Act) is designed to encourage public organisations to be more open and allows anyone, no matter who they are or where they live, to make a request for information.
Under the Act you have a right to request any recorded information held by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent subject to that which can be with-held under the relevant exemptions contained within the Act. You can ask for any information you think we may hold. The right only covers recorded information which includes information held on computers, in emails and in printed or handwritten documents as well as images, video and audio recordings. We are not required to answer your question if this would mean creating new information or giving an opinion or judgment that is not already recorded.
A Freedom of Information Act Procedure has been developed and provides a detailed explanation of the processes followed by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner when a request or appeal is received under the Act.
If you are applying for personal information that we hold about you then this is covered under the Data Protection Act and you must submit a Subject Access Request.
