The complainant requested information about police attendance at incidents relating to a local care home. Thames Valley Police refused to confirm or deny whether information was held, citing section 30(3) of FOIA. The Commissioner found that the exemption was engaged and that the public interest in maintaining the exclusion of the duty to confirm or deny outweighed the public interest in disclosing whether Thames Valley Police holds the information. The Commissioner therefore found that Thames Valley Police had acted correctly in refusing to confirm or deny whether it held the information.
