Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50219757
  • Date: 1 February 2010
  • Public Authority: Essex Constabulary
  • Summary: The complainant made a request for information about two police officers serving within Essex Police (the “public authority”). The information was withheld under the exemption in section 40(2) (personal information) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”). The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemption at section 40(2) is engaged but that disclosure would not breach any of the principles in the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “DPA”). The complaint is upheld. The Commissioner further finds that the public authority breached sections 1(1)(b) and 10(1) in failing to disclose the withheld information.
