Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police (Police and Criminal Justice): ICO 16 Feb 2022

The complainant requested information from West Yorkshire Police about the telephone system used at Havertop Lane Police Station in relation to telephone calls he believed had been made. West Yorkshire Police denied holding some of the requested information and refused to confirm or deny whether it held the remainder, citing sections 40(5) (personal information) and 30(3) (investigations and proceedings) of FOIA. Having investigated its application of section 40(5), the Commissioner’s decision is that West Yorkshire Police was entitled, by virtue of section 40(5A) of FOIA, to neither confirm nor deny holding the requested information. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken as a result of this decision.
