Nothing To Disclose
It is clear from videos available on youtube ( url ref https://youtu.be/kUO2oNz5m3I?t=187) that officers of your force are mis-using existing legislation in order to unlawfully detain and search innocent members of the public on false pretext.
I remind you that section 44 has been repealed and that photography in a public place is not a crime (or offense of any kind).
In reference to the foregoing please provide or direct me to any report on this incident which has been forwarded to IPCC or HMIC (reference numbers only will suffice).
Please also provide evidence of remedial action that has been put in place to educate your officers in an improved knowledge of current legislation and improve interface with the general public.

I would like to submit a Freedom of Information request regarding burglary figures for the past three years.
I would like to know:
How many burglaries have been reported in your force area in 13-14, 14-15, 15-16?
How many of those reports have led to a successful prosecution?
How many remain open investigations?

successful prosecutions may be too time consuming to process.
If that is the case please could you change it to how many have led to
people being summonsed or charged?**
We are concerned at the speed of traffic approaching the railway crossing. Three s back there was a letter in the Newmarket Journal referring to racing down this stretch of road and a few weeks back someone lost his legs due to an accident.
However, to my knowledge, there have been 3 fatalities between the Stetchworth turning and the railway crossing. Further, 2 speed cameras were established and both destroyed by vandalism
I would like to take up the matter with my MP but first would like to establish the facts as to the number of accidents reported on the 1.5 mile stretch of road and why no action has been taken to re-install a camera and protect it from vandalism.
I have raised the matter with Cambridge County Council but they told me it was a matter for the police. However as I live in Cambridgeshire and the B1061 is in this county I would appreciate advice as to where I should direct this email if you are not the correct recipient.
I am conscious of the need not to involve the force unnecessarily but this matter has life-threatening potential and I felt justified to raise the question of safety.
I would like details of the number of vehicles recorded exceeding the 60mph speed limit on the Orwell Bridge between 1 August 2016 and 31 August 2016.
I would like to know the number of vehicles that were recorded as exceeding the limit by the average speed cameras – and whose drivers were contacted as a result.
I would like to know how many of these resulted in:
Drivers taking a speed awareness course.
Drivers issued with a fixed penalty notice which resulted in points on their licence.
Drivers issued with a summons to court as a result of exceeding the speed limit.
I would also like to know the fastest speed recorded on the bridge during August that resulted in police action (ie disregarding emergency vehicles legitimately exceeding the limit).
I would also like updated figures on fixed penalties/speed awareness course/court summons arising from the 1,699 drivers caught speeding in July.
Many thanks. I appreciate this is repetitive, but we are keen to see if driver behaviour is changing.
If possible, could you please provide me with the following information please:
Where provisions to tackle antisocial behaviour contained in the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (Injunction to Prevent Nuisance and Annoyance, Community Protection Notice, Public Space Protection Order, Dispersal Powers, Criminal Behaviour Order) have been used against rough sleeping (see below for a definition of rough sleeping) or associated behaviours (e.g. placement of material deemed to be bedding on the floor; sleeping in public; sleeping out after dark), how many of the following interventions have been made for failing to comply with any of the measures, between the Act’s implementation in October 2014 and April 2016:
d) Fixed Penalty Notices
g) Prison sentences
If possible within the cost limits, could you give the demographic breakdown of the aggregate number of interventions? So looking at arrests, prosecutions, convictions, Fixed Penalty Notices, cautions, fines and prison sentences as one whole group, what is the demographic breakdown (gender, nationality, ethnicity and whether adult or child) of this group?
And also, how many of each of these early interventions commonly used to resolve antisocial behaviour before resorting to provisions in the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, have been used to tackle rough sleeping or associated behaviours (e.g. placement of material deemed to be bedding on the floor; sleeping in public; sleeping out after dark) between the Act’s implementation in October 2014 and April 2016:
b) Community Remedies
d) Acceptable Behaviour Contracts
e) Referrals to support or counselling services
f) Community Protection Notice warnings
If possible within the cost limits, could you give the demographic breakdown of the aggregate number of these early interventions? So looking at warnings, community remedies, mediations, Acceptable Behaviour Contacts, and referrals to support or counselling services as one whole group, what is the demographic breakdown (gender, nationality, ethnicity and whether adult or child) of this group?
Could all data in the above request be broken down by Community safety Partnership/Local Authority level.
Could you clarify whether you are only recording data on interventions for failing to comply for cases that your authority is responsible for.
Definition of rough sleeping:
Rough sleeping means that you do not have anywhere to sleep in. People bedding down in doorways, cars, derelict buildings, sheds, tents (excluding campsites) or any other place that is not designed for people to sleep in and is unsuitable are classed as sleeping rough.
How many: i) arrests; ii) prosecutions; iii) convictions, under section 4 of the Vagrancy Act 1824 for sleeping out and lodging in any barn or outhouse or in any deserted or unoccupied building or in the open air or under a tent, or in any cart or wagon and not giving good account of himself or herself have been made for each financial year between 2010/11 and 2015/16 inclusively?
For each offence could you break down the figures by gender, ethnicity, nationality and whether the person is an adult or child?
And could you break all data down by Community Safety Partnership/Local Authority area.
Could you please answer the following questions under the Freedom of Information Act?
1) How many cases of fraud were referred to your police force by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau in 2015?
2) How many of these cases resulted in a prosecution?
