Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act requires every public authority to have a publication scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is to define the types of information we will routinely publish through our website, such as policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, annual reports and financial information.

Our scheme is in line with the Information Commissioner's Office Model Publication Scheme for Police Forces.

Our scheme helps to improve openness and to ensure that by providing a significant amount of information, we will help to reduce the need for individual requests to be made.
