    • Hi GrievingMum   I fully understand and sympathise with your medical conditions.   The 3 screenshots/images in post#21 I have removed as I have converted those into one PDF which is now showing in that post.   CAG prefers PDFs rather than multiple screenshots/images but as I said I appreciate your medical condition so I have converted those screenshots/images into one PDF and removed the screenshots/images and left the PDF in your post.    CAG also prefers that all our caggers remain Anonymous on CAG, could I just suggest that when your have edited your document to just leave it for a while then go back to it and recheck that you have removed all info to keep you anonymous before uploading to CAG.
    • The letter send to contact them. Maybe if they wanted people to ring them they should put telephone? I was in India at the time so not really convenient to call them (I can prove this to them if it became an issue)  
    • Hi  I genuinely have not received this BUT I am not saying that it hasnt been sent as I am sure it will have been.   As i said, my son has the same name as me and I am sure if he had seen one of these, he will have let me know as he did when he opened the second letter. 
    • worthy notes from your thread..   .POFA doesn't apply the docks byeleaws and their signage is a miserable failure to create a contract with you either ( either an invitation to treat or prohibitive signage according to which one you read) . the land is not relevant land as far as the POFA goes so there is no keeper liability in this matter so there is no cause for action against me. As docks and harbours governed by it own byelaws these are supreme to any contract you claim to have so there is no contract for the driver to consider that is enforceable. . 1.There is no cause for action  as there is no contract between us.  The land is covered by its own byelaws that are supreme to anything you wish to claim is an offer so there can be no performance to the contract by yourselves.  . 2. As the land is not relevant land for the purposes of the POFA there can be no keeper liability and that means you had no reasonable cause to obtain my keeper details so any civil claim will be met by a counterclaim for at least £250 for your breach of the GDPR.  . you know it is a dock so covered by its own byelaws so therefore unlikely PE can offer you anything and certainly can't create a keeper liability. . PE has no locus standi , no cause for ation as land not "relevant land" and covered by its own byelaws. IN ANY CASE ss POFA not applicable there can never be any keeper liability.         
    • stuff silly reclaimers they take +35% and no it doesn't meet the deadline no harm in going to the RBS website and starting a claim.. you never know simply put the number of the card in and say you think you had ppi please investigate. say nothing more   they can only refuse you, but comeback here with what they say.

Hi,

 

I have experienced many problems with police harrassment & other problems with them... I have tried to do a SAR but have had problems doing that and from what I understand a fee of £10 is payable to each police force / county for records - Which I cannot afford and seems so difficult to obtain records... 

 

Is there any way I can obtain nationwide SAR records with only paying one fee?

 

I could not seem to find a relevant sub-forum to post this in - Is there an area on CAG for police complaints?

 

Many Thanks

Thank you for your reply Andy.... That's good that they are now free!

 

How do I go about doing this? I am currently in Cambridgeshire, but have had issues in several other counties and would like full & comprehensive records, without having to write to separate county forces...

I was given a telephone number for data protection department, but they never answer...

 

I think they have a SAR form too asking for 6 years of addresses, but I would like records going back further than that and can't remember addresses from many years ago and not even sure Police would have addresses on record from particular experiences... Is there a national Police database that would hold details relating just to name & DOB?... When requesting records do you have to specify which Police station / area for particular incident, or can you just ask for full records covering entire UK?

 

Does anyone know what kind of data/records can be obtained from Police? Is it possible to obtain all records from calls made to 101, 999, call recordings, files, allegations, other records, fingerprints, photographs, arrest records, case records, body cam footage etc.... How far back are records held?

 

Many Thanks

Why don't you call the Information commissioners Office (ICO) to obtain advice on this.

 

There are different rules in regard to Police records, when compared to say a Bank, because obviously with Police records they can keep relevant information for longer and still use it.  

 

As the issue you are raising is quite complicated, you might want contact the ICO first and then search online for organisations that help in regard to issues with the Police.

Unclebulgaria - Thank you for your reply.

 

I have tried that before and didn't get very far - They have been quite unhelpful with helping with this.

 

From what I understand you have to request info from each police force / station as well, but just wondered if there was an easier way, and they also ask you to provide reference numbers and dates too for specific incidences, but I would like them to provide info on dates and incidences and officers involved etc... 

 

Are police records held separately at each Police station, or kept altogether under somebodies name/DOB?... 

 

Just trying to find out where I can send my SAR

Sorry for the vague questions - Does anyone know what info exactly shows on a police database computer search when someones name / DOB / address is entered?...

 

Is there like a computerised file for each person and also paper records kept somewhere? 

 

Also, does anybody know why Police would be in a regular unmarked car, but in full police uniform?

Thank you for the links - I've seen those before...

 

If I was to make a claim against the Police for harrassment relating to multiple incidences, would a separate claim have to be made to each separate area/police station/force, or can one claim be made to cover entire UK Police?

 

Has anyone had any experience of making successful claim of this nature?

Depending on their role, there could be many reasons, including (but not limited to)

a) Local officers in a GP (General Purpose) car,

b) Roads Policing Unit officers in an unmarked car, so that (member of the public) drivers don’t know it is a police car until closer (so less likely to change their driving behaviour just because they see a police car).

 

The police have more exemptions from DSAR information release than most (for the catchall purpose of assisting with crime prevention) otherwise criminals could just keep applying for details on themselves [not that I am suggesting you are a criminal, but that is why the police have the extra exemption!], so you may not get the detail you seek.

 

https://www.askthe.police.uk/Content/Q87.htm

 

One application will yield the (releasable) info from PNC, but for “locally held” information you’d need to approach each individual service.

 

You’ve posted about harassment from your:

a) mortgage company (yet they are allowed to pursue you for non payment of mortgage for over a year),

b) utilities company (they are allowed to seek a warrant to fit a pre-pay meter if you haven’t advanced realistic proposals to pay your £300+ [and increasing] debt), and

c) car finance company, (again over non-payment).

 

It also depends what you feel is harassment, and if that meets the legal standard for harassment - the fact you feel distressed by it doesn’t mean it becomes harassment - it is if a reasonable ordinary person would feel the same, (most people would expect a mortgage company to attempt repossession after a year of non-payment, or an electricity company to seek a warrant to fit a pre-pay meter if someone showed no sign of an I/E that showed ability to repay an ever increasing debt, and had refused a pre-pay meter by agreement)

 

The devil is in the detail : Why do you feel each has moved from lawfully following up a debt and become harassment, and what has happened with the police (across numerous services, from what you have posted) that constitutes harassment?

 

A complaint to the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for that service might be another way forward, though it would be worth ensuring others felt it was harassment, too, before making the complaint.

The mortgage company commenced repossession action pretty much straight away - There had not been a year of non-payment.

 

The incident with the uniformed Police in unmarked car: 

 

I had received several phonecalls and voicemail messages on my phones from the Police, demanding that I attend a non-local Police station for interview. I did not like the tone of those messages and felt incredibly distressed by that, which came off the back of somebody making false, malicious allegations against me. I complained via 101 about the telephone calls and then, I think about 2-3 weeks later was visited at my home address by 2 male officers in unmarked car, which they used to block the entire entrance/exit to my property. 

 

They banged on my front door and spoke to me with contempt, in a threatening and intimidating manner, as I had made a complaint about a fellow officer and they questioned me in relation to allegations made by somebody and advised me that I was being recorded on body cam. He threatened me again when I started recording on my own phone. 

 

They were deliberately speaking very loudly and by now a crowd of people had gathered who could hear all of this information. The Police were mocking me also and I felt incredibly intimidated, threatened and distressed. They refused to take any details of my complaint against the party who had made the false allegations and reduced me to tears, before quickly scarpering back to their car. I believe they were there with the sole intention of causing me alarm & distress... Which they did.

 

I subsequently made a formal complaint about them and then further Police harrassment escalated from there...

 

I will add more info about other incidences as soon as I can

Looking at this from another viewpoint, what you are describing is:

An allegation was made against you, so the police are bound to consider it and investigate if there is reasonable suspicion an offence may have been committed.

They gave you the option of attending a police station. You chose not to, so they came to visit you.

 

You seem put out they came in an unmarked car. Surely that is preferable to a marked car in terms of your privacy.

 

If you were concerned as to the privacy aspect of being spoken to on your doorstep (& given you had already declined to attend the police station), why did you not invite them in?.

 

How would you wish them to proceed if  they needed to speak with you regarding an allegation, you hadn’t agreed to go to a police station, and you hadn’t invited them in?

I think Bazza is trying to establish what you want to achieve. I haven't had very much to do with the police, but I'm a bit confused about how someone can have problems with several different forces.

What am I aiming to achieve? Clarity as to if your expectations of treatment (and desired outcome) are:

a) reasonable (where all efforts to help you should be made), or

b) unreasonable (for example complaining about an unmarked car being used, where you likely would complain more if they’d used a marked car!), (where people can decide how much effort to put in to help you based on the likelihood of realistic expectations of the police’s behaviour and realistic expectation of outcome).

You haven’t actually said what you want as an outcome, have you?

 

So, my question remains “How would you wish them to proceed if  they needed to speak with you regarding an allegation, you hadn’t agreed to go to a police station, and you hadn’t invited them in?”.

 

It isn’t an unreasonable question, and hopefully you can give a reasoned and reasonable answer...

Bazza, I tend to treat people how they treat me and expect a certain, reasonable level of respect... I don't expect, nor appreciate to be held accountable for other peoples' ignorance, malice, lack of common sense, lack of human decency etc.. (Not that I'm saying you lack common sense)..

 

I hope that is a sufficient response for you.

 

If somebody spits their dummy out at me because I am not meeting their unrealistic expectations, and treating me with disdain (not that I am saying you are doing that), then I am going to respond accordingly to that. Behaviour breeds behaviour...

 

I find your questions distracting and a little bit dressing and do not have the time, or energy to respond to some of your comments, which I feel, in any event, most likely would not be satisfactory for you.

 

All I can do is the best that I can to my own ability and have already stated that I intend to provide more information as and when I feel able to... I was initially asking for assistance with a SAR for this and I still feel your questioning is somewhat unclear and distracting and still do not understand what your intention is... I don't feel able, or inclined to answer your questions, which are confusing me and, amongst other things, I suffer from PTSD and you might get more answers if you approach me a bit differently, as you have come across to me as quite judgmental, and lacking in understanding of my posts.

 

It feels as though you are trying to pull apart my post, rather than offer any kind of support, helpful advice etc .

Hi,

 

If I write a bullet point list of info I would like from Police, would anyone possibly be able to help me draft a SAR letter?.. Sorry to be so needy, but just cant think very clearly at the moment and will take me forever otherwise..

 

I would appreciate any help with this.

 

Many Thanks

  • Printed hardcopies of PNC records
  • Copies of all computerised records
  • Copies of all handwritten notes relating to me
  • Dates, times, names of call handlers, details of calls, typed transcripts, outcome of call, for all calls made by me or about me to 101 and 999

  • Full Details of my complaints made, who dealt with them and what was done about them
  • Dates, times & names of all visits to my home address and purpose of visit
  • Any other data, records, information held about me

Please could somebody also clarify if I would need to send SAR letter to each Police force individually (as some events happened in different counties), or if I can just send to one national Police address? 

 

Many Thanks

I forgot to add to my bullet point list:

 

  • Reference numbers/dates for all reports made by me, or involving me, whether made by phone or in station and full details of handling officer/s and what was done about each (some occasions I have not been provided with any reference).
  • Full case records including witness statements and all other data from every single Police station / force / county in the UK.
  • If any of above records not available, a full explanation why and/or certificate of destruction 

I don't feel my wording is very good - Would really appreciate if anyone can help draft full letter... otherwise may never get around to it...

 

Does anyone know if certain records / files get archived or sent to a national Police office after certain period of time, or are records stored actually in individual stations forever?

Hi,

 

I'm hoping someone could tell me if a file of specific Police case from decades ago would be held in the individual Police station that were responsible for it, or if the case papers would be archived / stored somewhere else?

Decades ago? !

 

Was it part of a major enquiry?

Of significant public interest?

Resulted in a Crown Court prosecution?

Bazza - About 25-30 years ago...

 

Yes, yes and yes... A prosecution against the Police for their utter incompetence involving a Police/court case which was escalated to Crown court and tore my family apart.. The Police were given a severe telling off for their incompetence and mis-handling, which caused so much trauma to my family, to say the least...

 

I just want to know where all of the paper records would be held now, so that I am not on a wild goose chase to get copies of them
