Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to ask for all recorded information we have on any subject.

Please note that in relation to Freedom of Information requests, the Office of the South Wales Police & Crime Commissioner and South Wales Police are two separate entities; therefore a request to one is not the responsibility of the other in terms of updates, response or disclosure. If you wish to make a Freedom of Information request to South Wales Police or view their previous disclosures, please click here.

Some sensitive information might not be available to members of the public. If this is the case, we will tell you why we have withheld some or all of the information you requested.

All our responses are published in our Disclosure Logs.

We want to be as open and transparent as possible, so we regularly publish information on this website under the ‘Transparency’ menu and in doing so this fulfils our obligations under the Freedom of Information publication scheme.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for on this site, you can make a request to us. This must be done in writing, either by post, email or online.  We have 20 working days to respond to requests.

The Information Commissioner provides full details of the Freedom of Information Act.
