Freedom of Information

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is a public authority under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The Act gives anyone a right to access all types of recorded information held by public authorities, subject to exemptions listed and places a number of obligations on public authorities

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 intends to create a culture of transparency and accountability to allow for better understanding of how the Police and Crime Commissioner works, how decisions are made and how we spend public money.

Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information.
