In addition to the general right of access given to individuals under the Freedom of Information Act, public authorities are required to adopt, implement and maintain a Publication Scheme, which is based on classes of information that have been defined by the Information Commissioner.
This Publication Scheme commits an authority to make information available to the public as part of its normal business activities and is designed to inform members of the public about the certain types of information that we publish or intend to publish under the generic class headings which are listed.
Publication Schemes are intended to encourage organisations to publish more information proactively and to develop a greater culture of openness.
If you require a hard copy of any document contained in the Publication Scheme, please apply in writing to:
South Yorkshire Police
Information Compliance Unit
Professional Standards Department
Unit 20 Sheffield 35A Business Park
Or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When requesting hard copies of Information included in this scheme, please include:
- Your name and address
- The information or documents you require
- And if possible a contact telephone number should we need to clarify what your require.
