Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')
Thank you for your email dated 4 October 2010 in which you made a request for access to certain information which may be held by Northumbria Police.
As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.
I am searching for information on a vehicle we own, which was previously owned by yourself, I would appreciate it if you can provide the following information on: Y787 ECN (Yankee 787 Echo Charlie November(Volvo V70 T5)
Can you provide me with the service schedule and maintenance information for the vehicle while in your ownership
Can you provide any recall work done to this vehicle while in your ownership
Can you provide information on its role within Northumbria Police and if possible any images.
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
You should note this vehicle was sold by the force in September 2006.
1-2. Northumbria Police holds no information in relation to your request.
Outside of the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I am able to advise that Northumbria Police vehicles do not have a "service history" in the accepted sense of that phrase. All Northumbria Police vehicles are maintained as per their manufacturer's recommended regime, but service stamps are not used in the way a dealer would use them. We do not provide a service history for vehicles when they are sold. All vehicles are disposed of by auction and are 'sold as seen'.
3. The vehicle was used as a Motor Patrol car throughout its life with the force. We have no images of the vehicle.
The information we have supplied to you is likely to contain intellectual property rights of Northumbria Police. Your use of the information must be strictly in accordance with the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended) or such other applicable legislation. In particular, you must not re-use this information for any commercial purpose.

If you are still unhappy after we have investigated your complaint and reported to you the outcome, you may complain directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office and request that they investigate to ascertain whether we have dealt with your request in accordance with the Act.
