Freedom of Information Disclosure Log

FOIThe Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, as with any public organisation, receives many Freedom of Information (FOI) requests from the general public on a large variety of topics, for disclosure. FOI requests are governed by Freedom of Information guidelines.

In the realms of transparency, the Office of the PCC will publish Freedom of Information requests and their responses on a monthly basis in an effort to answer the questions posed and assist with any future requests, where possibly the same information may requested.

If a request is not published in any of the Freedom of Information Logs below, it is possibly still being processed under Freedom of Information guidelines or may have been passed to the Force as it may deal with a crime or operational matter. To view the
Cleveland Police Freedom of Information Disclosure Log, click here.

All FOI requests are listed by their response date and are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.

Price and Bonnard Misconduct

I have recently received the attached decision notice regarding the investigation report into Sean Price and Derek Bonnard regarding allegations of professional misconduct. After receiving the report, I asked the ICO whether consideration had been given to producing a redacted version of the report and it became apparent the ICO had not considered such a course of action in its deliberations. I am considering whether to raise this with a tribunal but in the meantime I wanted to make a fresh FOI request for the same report and ask that the PCC now reconsiders the request in light of the altered picture today as all misconduct proceedings are at an end. I also ask that the PCC looks closely at providing a redacted version of the report if it is maintained that publication of the entire report is exempt under section 31. It is suggested, in particular, that attention is given to the information previously released into the public domain and referred to in the report. For clarification, it is not accepted that section 31 applies as per the ICO's decision and the arguments forwarded regarding the potential effect on an investigation are further undermined by the date of this request being more than two years after the police inquiry began and nearly two years after Price and Bonnard were arrested.

For example, if a member of staff spends 2 days per week on union business, this is equal to 0.4 FTE. 3.a) Does your organisation provide the facility to deduct trade union subscriptions from staff salaries in the payroll process? b) If so, for each union please state what your organisation charged for this service (whether as a fixed amount per employee or a percentage), and the total amount collected in: i) 2011-12 ii) 2012-13 Please note that the guidelines issued by ACAS state that: "An employee who is a member of an independent trade union recognised by the employer in respect of that description of employee is to be permitted reasonable time off during working hours to take part in any trade union activity. An employee who is a member of an independent and recognised trade union is also permitted to take reasonable time off during working hours for the purposes of accessing the services of a Union Learning Representative (provided those services are services for which the Union Learning Representative is entitled to time off)." If the information is not recorded, there is no way of ascertaining whether the time off provided is reasonable. I therefore do not expect the response that the organisation does not hold this information. If a formal record is not kept then I will accept a reasonable estimate. If the response to any of the questions is 'nil' or you are unable to answer any of them, please continue to respond to the other questions.

Calculation of Police Injury on Duty Pensions

I wish to ask the following questions in relation to the calculation process of Police Injury On Duty Pension banding calculations. I ask this as there appears to be different ways of calculating this throughout the UK.

Is a theoretical/notional earning figure (sometimes referred to as a Police Earnings Assessment Matrix **PEAM**) used in the calculation of Police Injury On Duty Pensions in Cleveland?

Is this figure which is normally a monetary value utilised in a formula by the Selected Medical Practitioner to calculate a banding of the injury pension.

If this PEAM figure is used, at what part of the process is it used? Is it used in the initial (first) part of the injury on duty pension assessment to use as one of the multipliers or is this used when a review of an IOD pension is taking place?

I ask this as I am aware some Police Services throughout the UK use this theoretical earning figure at differing parts of the process of calculating IOD pension bandings, some use it during the very first part of the process at the very first IOD pension assessment and some only use it at the point of a review instigated by the IOD pensioner or by the Police Pension administrator.

It is clear that not using this theoretical earning figure at the very first assessment will possibly result in a higher banding with solely the SMP disablement percentage used for the banding i.e. 25% (band 1), 44% (band 2), 75% (band 3) & 90% (band 4).

I ask, at which point do Cleveland Police IOD pension administrator use this theoretical earning figure and could an example of the formula or examples of the formulas be given. Is the theoretical figure used during the very first part of the IOD calculation or is it only used during a review process?

Is the use of this theoretical earning figure in such calculations lawful and what law/ legislation/ guidance is used. If it is lawful what law/legislation/guidance is followed?

The largest amount of illegal   drugs exported to the UK in the last 5 years (December 2010 – December 2015)   was by the white/Indian continent     community. Yet the Black community are stopped and searched 5 to 17   times more often.

Why then are Black British   Christians more likely to be stopped than any other race in Britain. Even   during a time of war against terror?

Could it be because the Black   British Christian population does not have the same wealth, lucrative   investment deals, or the robust political representation to affect the status   quo? 

Or is the British slave   mentality of the 1800’s so ingrained within Political, judicial and media   mind, that it is unwilling to acknowledge that the self appointed superior   racial grouping has a spiralling crime rate, out stripping any other race in   the UK. The continued blinked, but tried and tested use of the   “inferior”  black population as the   sacrificial woe’s of this country, is the man clinging to the belief that he   will always be above the effects of the hang mans noose, even as it begins to   tighten?

Our greatest concern is the stead fast support for a body that is estimated to have 1/3 of its police   force in England and Wales belonging to right wing/nationalist extreme   parties or groups, but are able to perform their duties without bias   regardless of their extreme views/beliefs; unlike other extreme groups that   the force deem dangerous. Do the commissioners support the abilities of those   police officers who belong to such groups, and should they be allowed to   continue in such a roll considering the diverse society we now live in?

The massage that the police force in England and Wales is sending out to white criminals is – if you have a number of Black British people living in your area, you are up to 17 times   more likely to get away with criminal acts due to the mindset of the police   force and the Commissioners who continue to endorse racial implicit/explicit   basis profiling.The sums no longer add up. We want a full explanation for this   discrepancy and what real changes regarding stop and search of black British   citizens and what immediate action are going to be taken tackling the higher   number of crime committed within the white community?
