The complainant requested information about a self-referral from Staffordshire Police following a coroner’s report. The Independent Office for Police Conduct eventually responded to the request, but outside the 20 working day timeframe. The Commissioner’s decision is that the IOPC failed to respond to the request within 20 working days and therefore breached section 10 of the FOIA. As a response has now been issued, the Commissioner does not require further steps to be taken.
