Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50281100
  • Date: 15 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Chief Constable of Kent Police
  • Summary: The complainant requested the names, ranks and collar numbers of the police officers involved in making an arrest of a photographer, under the powers contained in section 44 of the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2000. The public authority refused the request under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, claiming that the information was sensitive personal data and should not be disclosed. The Commissioner finds that, in the circumstances that the request was made, disclosure of the requested information would breach the first data protection principle. The exemption provided by section 40(2) is therefore engaged and the public authority is not required to take any steps.
