Mr E requested from the Chief Constable of Tayside Police (Tayside Police) information relating to a police investigation. Tayside Police responded by informing Mr E that this was a repeated request and therefore subject to section 14(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA). Following a review, Mr E remained dissatisfied and applied to the Commissioner for a decision.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner found that Tayside Police had dealt with Mr E’s request for information in accordance with Part 1 of FOISA and had been entitled to decline to deal with the request on the basis that it was repeated.
