Your Right to Information

Graphic showing a folder and magnifying glass The Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire is committed to being open and transparent and making available information to the public to enable them to hold him to account during his term of office.

The main statutory responsibilities placed upon the PCC in relation to the publishing of information derive from the following legislation:

The PCC also follows good practice by publishing information as recommended by central government to local authorities on data transparency.

New rules about how businesses and organisations handle personal data come into force on May 25, 2018.  Find out more about how the OPCC is working towards compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Information we publish about our work

In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible.  We do this through our Publication Scheme.

The purpose of this scheme is to make the maximum amount of information easily available to the public to explain the work undertaken by the Commissioner and his office, how finances are spent, what policies and procedures we follow and how decisions are made.

Go to the Publication Scheme

We also publish a log of the information we have provided in response to Freedom of Information requests.

Go the FOI Disclosure Log

If you are unable to find the information you require in our Publication Scheme, through our FOI Disclosure logs or elsewhere on our website, you can make a request under the Freedom of Information Act legislation.  Find out more about your right to information and how you can make a request on our Freedom of Information page.
