Police exempt from FOIA

#1
Crafty buggers, police state anyone ?

(Exemption from the freedom of information act)

Excerpt ..............

By taking the route that the ACPO have, putting everything behind a shield of limited companies, exempt from the Freedom of Information act and operating outside of judicial oversight, we are right to assume that the Police State are the unwritten objectives.

Unless this is total bull.... of course but it looks authentic to me.

The Police are not exempt. Do a FOIA check with your local force o find out whether they are :D

That is frightening no longer employees, no longer accountable to the Home Secretary:

Further, the ACPO Memorandum and Articles of Association state:

The Statement of Purpose for the Company is:
“The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) is an independent, professionally led strategic body. In the public interest and, in equal and active partnership with Government and the Association of Police Authorities, ACPO leads and coordinates the direction and development of the police service in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In times of national need ACPO, on behalf of all chief officers, coordinates the strategic policing response.”

Cuote" By creating the ACPO with limited company status, they very cleverly exempt themselves from the Freedom of Information Act (2000), as out lined very clearly by this statement from the ACPO FOI manual."

He's working on the assumption that ACPO could run a bath, let alone a sinister secret organisation.

ACPO may be as is my club HBSA if it chose to be but whats more important is why a union of senior rozzers should need to protect themselves and from whom?
Then ask yourself why they are accepted as the key policy making body for HM constabulary (yes a limited company) and how they managed to elevate themselves into a position where they are in effect political lobbyists (perhaps this is why they want to hide (expenditure on lobbyists etc) and how they can have such an effect upon legislation when the Police is there to serve the public and uphold the law?
As a director of a couple of Ltd Companies I'd rather not have my personal detail on Tintenet but then I dont have all of that to hide or do I?

Perhaps I can get my local police authority to fund my limited company or explain how much and why they are paying my council tax money to an organisation like this which isnt as perceived an association of senior plod but a lobbying firm!
FOI to sussex police authority me thinks

This is interesting..........
( From another sourse :wink: ) .. > " Interesting to note that their profits have increased from £19,000 to £815,000 in three years. Political repression is obviously a growth business.
So where is that lolly comming from ? :roll:

Non -story.

Only certain parts of police operations and intel are exempt, as are military ops and intel.

They won't answer, the bloke from ACPO sat in a high backed swivel chair and stroking a white cat will block your feeble attempt to find out anything and then have you murdered by sharks with laser beams on their fikkin heads.

Nonsense, as a private company ACPO are not governed by FOI. These clowns should get back to their day job.

OK mate can you explain why this bunch of public servants have formed a private company which instructs the police on how to conduct their business? How much of the money that could go into your pay rise is going into their back pockets?
