Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50117048
  • Date: 22 February 2007
  • Public Authority: Chief Officer South Yorkshire Police
  • Summary: The complainant requested a copy of a photograph of a police crew bus caught speeding. The public authority refused to release the information on the basis it was exempt under sections 30, 38 and 40 of the Act. The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemptions at sections 38 and 40 were not engaged and that whilst section 30 was engaged, the public interest in disclosing the information was not outweighed by the public interest in withholding it. Consequently, the complaint is upheld.
