Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50210434
  • Date: 24 June 2009
  • Public Authority: Chief Constable of Kent Police
  • Summary: The complainant requested the details of complaints made about two named police officers. The public authority refused to confirm or deny whether it held information falling within the scope of this request and cited the exemption provided by section 40(5)(b)(i). The Commissioner finds that confirmation or denial would disclose personal data and that the disclosure of this personal data would be in breach of the first data protection principle. The exemption provided by section 40(5)(b)(i) is, therefore, engaged and the public authority is not required to take any steps. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
