The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right, and places a number of obligations on public authorities. This includes central and local government, non-departmental public bodies, the police, the health service and schools, colleges and universities.


In addition to the general right of access we publish a Publication Scheme, a document which contains links to some of the OPCCs most used information. This makes information available to the public as part of normal business activities and enables the public to access information readily, without recourse to Freedom of Information requests.


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


How do I make a request?
