South Wales Police (Police and Criminal Justice) FS50596075: ICO 8 Jun 2016

ICO The complainant requested information about guidelines in relation to a number of mobile speed camera sites and the name and contact details of the person who authorised the use of two specific sites. South Wales Police stated it did not hold some of the information requested, one request did not constitute a valid request and applied section 14(1) to two requests which it considered vexatious. During the course of the Commissioner’s investigation, South Wales Police withdrew reliance on section 14(1) in relation to one request and applied section 40(2) in the alternative. The Commissioner’s decision is that South Wales Police does not hold some of the information requested and that one of the requests was not valid as per section 8 of the FOIA. The Commissioner has also determined that South Wales Police has correctly applied section 40(2) to one request and section 14(1) to another request.
