I’d like to follow-up the FOI request below which has not been responded to (or acknowledged). It has now passed the statutory time limit. Please be advised that the Data Commissioner will be contacted if no response is received.
This request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
You will note in your first message to us that the email address you typed in was Freedomof.Information@cleveland.pnn.police.uk
You will see that you have put in a full stop between the word ‘of’ and the letter ‘I’ in the address bar and as such your initial request never arrived in the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland.
The most usual way for us to receive a FOI request is either by clicking on a link on our website or by typing in the correct address which is firstname.lastname@example.org
Your second message arrived on 30 March 2017 and it is from that date that I will address your freedom of information request.
Regarding your request I can now inform you that I have completed my enquiries and that my reply on behalf of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland is as follows.
I can confirm that the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland does not hold this information.
s16 of the FOIA requires me to try and assist you in seeking the information you have asked for. In that vein I understand that this information may be held by Cleveland Police.
