The complainant requested information relating to ‘stop and search’ activities. Bedfordshire Police provided some information but refused to provide the remainder, citing sections 24 (national security) and 31 (law enforcement) of FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that Bedfordshire Police has failed to demonstrate that either exemption is engaged. The Commissioner requires the public authority to take the following steps to ensure compliance with the legislation: disclose the requested information in scope of parts (1) and (2) of the request.
