The complainant has requested year-on-year staffing information, broken down by rank and gender, from Sussex Police. Sussex Police disclosed some information, but failed to respond to the request in full. The Commissioner’s decision is that Sussex Police breached section 10 by failing to provide a complete response in respect of the request. The Commissioner requires Sussex Police to issue a fresh response to the request, confirming or denying whether the information requested at parts (2) – (5), broken down by rank, year and (for parts (2), (3) and (5) only) gender, is held. If it is held, disclose the information or issue a refusal notice which complies with section 17 of the FOIA.
