Freedom of Information Act
You have a right, under Freedom of Information laws, to see most
of the information about who we are, what we do and how we do it.
This includes things like our policy documents, administration,
expenses and other details of our day-to-day organisation.
There are exceptions, such as confidential information about
other people or matters that would prevent us from doing our job
effectively, and we don't have to provide information that is
already available to the public.
There are also times when it would cost too much to find the
information. For example, if someone asked how many stolen handbags
in the past ten years were green, we would have to go through every
case individually to count them, and this would take an
unreasonable amount of time.
Requests under the Freedom of Information Act have to made in
writing, and there is no fee for providing the answers although we
may charge for costs like postage and photocopying. If there is
going to be a charge we will let you know in advance so that you
can decide whether or not to go ahead.
