Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (known hereafter as 'the Act') gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by the Constabulary.

The Act places a number of obligations on the Constabulary, including the need to create and maintain a Publication Scheme. The aim of the Publication Scheme is to set out classes of information which routinely are made publicly available. The current version of the Scheme is based upon the Information Commissioners' Office's Model Scheme and the Definitions Document for Police Forces (i.e. the minimum standards in which a Police Force should adhere to in its Publication Scheme).
