The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) were introduced to enable members of the public to have access to environmental information that West Midlands Police hold. Further details of the Regulations can be found on the Information Commissioner's website by following the link below
Please note that if you require personal information in relation to yourself, e.g. concerning incidents in which you were involved or to obtain a criminal records check, please use form WA162
Please note that any requests received via email after 5pm Monday to Thursday will be recorded as received the next working day. Any requests received after 5pm on a Friday will be recorded as received the following Monday.
Charging is at the discretion of the Force but must be reasonable. If a fee is required you will be informed how much you will have to pay and to whom along with a schedule of costs. On receipt of the payment we will give you the information.
The Force cannot make a charge to access any public registers or lists of environmental information; or to examine the information in person.
We aim to provide the information requested within 20 working days. However, in circumstances where the information requested is particularly complex and voluminous the time limit can be extended by a further 20 working days. The requestor must be notified within the initial 20 working days and the Force must state when they believe they will be able to respond in full.
