Request information

The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to ask any public sector organisation for all the recorded information they have on any subject. This includes Kent Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC). Anyone can make a request for information – there are no restrictions on your age, nationality or where you live.

Most requests are free but you might be asked to pay a small amount for photocopies or postage. You will be told if you have to pay anything.

You should receive the information within 20 working days. If we need more time, we will contact you and tell you when you can expect the information.

Please note that the OPCC does not hold information about operational policing - including crime data or information about numbers of road traffic collisions. If you are seeking information about crime levels where you live you could visit the Your Area section of the Kent Police website or alternatively make an FOI request directly to Kent Police.

Furthermore, if you wish to know what information the OPCC holds about you (a Subject Access Request), please do so by email.

Are all requests granted?

Some sensitive information might not be available to members of the public for justifiable reasons. If this is the case, we will tell you why we have withheld some or all of the information you requested.
  • We can turn down your request if we think it will cost us more than £450 to deal with your request
  • We might then ask you to be more specific so we can provide the information you’re looking for
  • If we don't provide you with the information you request, you should first contact us and ask us to review our decision

If you are still not satisfied, you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office.
