Subject Access Request

Your Subject Access rights (to ‘locally held’ information)

You have a right to be told whether any information is held about you and a right to a copy of that information, unless certain exemptions apply. This will be returned 1 calendar month after receipt of a fully completed form and proof of identity.

You will be provided with that information only if you have provided satisfactory proof of your identity. Information may not have to be provided if someone else can be identified in or from the information. If you think that information might be held about you that may identify or have been provided by another person, you may want to get that person’s written agreement to enable the information to be given to you. In addition to their consent, they will also need to provide two proofs of identity

The legislation allows us to extend the period of compliance by a further two months where requests are complex or numerous. If this is the case, we will inform you within one month of receipt of your request and explain why the extension is necessary

Police and Crime Commissioner’s rights

The provisions of the Data Protection Act mean that in certain circumstances some personal data will not be provided. For example you will not be provided with personal data if releasing it to you would be likely to prejudice a criminal investigation, and we may not provide you with information that identifies other individuals. The information you provide on this form will be used for processing your request.
