Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')(FOIA)
Thank you for your email dated 24th February 2012 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.
With regards to my earlier request - FOI 145/12 refers can I please resubmit and ask For the seven day period commencing 24/1/11 could you please provide the details of total hours worked individually by inspecting ranks in your force i.e. inspectors and chief inspectors, whether uniform or CID officers? Please break down by officer.
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
Following receipt of your request, further searches were conducted with the HR Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.
I have today decided to disclose the located information to you as follows.
The wide variation in hours relates to a combination of annual leave and shift patterns worked by officers during the seven day period requested. Shift patterns do not correspond with a Monday to Sunday calendar and therefore the period requested will cover more than one 'working week'. The hours all officers and staff work is governed by working time directives and health and safety legislation.
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.
