The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 exist to give
individuals the right to access environmental information that
public authorities hold and requires them to:
- Progressively make such information available to the public by
electronic means which is easily accessible
- Take reasonable steps to organise the information relevant to
its functions with a view to the active and systematic
dissemination to the public of the information
The Authority will publish information, as it becomes available,
on this web site making it available to download.
If you wish to make a request for information under the
Regulations you can do so in the following ways:
Post your request:
Freedom of Information Officer,
Cheshire Constabulary Headquarters,
Email your request: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fax your request: 01606 364133
Telephone: 01606 364176.
The Regulations allow requests to be made in person. The
authority will however, seek to confirm verbal requests in writing
to ensure accuracy and efficiency. If you wish to make a request in
person you should do so at your nearest Police Station for the
attention of the Freedom of Information Officer.
It is inadvisable to make verbal requests to patrol officers,
the nature of their duties means it is unlikely they will be able
to give any sort of priority to such requests.
- You should make your request clear and legible, and you should
try to be as specific as possible about the information you
- You should provide an address for us to send any documentation
or information back to. An email address is acceptable.
Independent advice and guidance is available on the
Information Commisioner’s website.
