RIPA POWERS

Request

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like to know the following:


* Can you state, for each year, how many occasions the council has invoked the powers of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act during the financial years of 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2013/14.
* For each instance of the powers being invoked can you provide a brief description of the the reason for invoking the RIPA powers.
* For each instance of the powers being invoked can you state the outcome. E.g. whether a conviction was secured, a penalty notice issued or no further action was taken.

Response


Further to my email below, I can now advise that the use of RIPA powers by Brentwood for the years 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2013/14 is Nil.
