Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.

Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information

What to do when making a request:  

 

  1. Is the information already available on our publication scheme?
  2. West Yorkshire Police receive approximately 1,000 requests a year. We may already have the answer to your question. Check our disclosure log which shows all requests we have disclosed since 29th May 2009.
  3. Do you require personal data about yourself? If so visit the Data Protection page and complete the Subject Access request form.
  4. If none of the above applies, please submit a Freedom of Information request.
