If you are unhappy with the information you receive from a freedom of information request, you have the right to appeal.

In the first instance, you should write to the Force Disclosure Unit:

Force Disclosure Unit
Devizes HQ
London Road
SN10 2DN

You will need to include the reference number and date of your request, plus details of why you are appealing.

What then?

We will then give you a date by which we expect to respond and the name of the person dealing with your appeal. This person will be independent from the original decision maker.

We aim to respond as soon as possible and at the latest within three months. 

After the considering your appeal, we will let you know the result, which will be to either release all of the information requested, some of the information requested, or to uphold the original decision.

If you are still unhappy after appealing, you have the right to contact the Information Commissioner, full details of which will also be included in our response letter.
