Make an FOI request

Before you make a request, has your question already been answered? Check our FOI disclosure log.

To make a request for information about yourself, e.g. personal data, please follow the instructions to make a Subject Access application.

To make a request for any other recorded information, first, please see the South Yorkshire Police Publication Scheme and Disclosure Log to see if the information you require is already available on our website.  Any requests for information which have already been published will be refused under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act, which states - Information Accessible to Applicant by Other Means.

To make a request for any other recorded information, under the Freedom of Information Act, you can do any of the following:

  •  Write to :

          South Yorkshire Police
          Information Compliance Unit
          Professional Standards Department
          Unit 20 Sheffield 35A Business Park

  • Submit your request online here

There is a duty under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, for public authorities to provide advice and/or assistance to anyone seeking information (for example, in order to explain what is readily available or to clarify what is required).  For us to deal with your request, you must include your name and address and if possible, a contact telephone number to enable us to contact you clarify any part of your request.

Please note - any requests received by South Yorkshire Police may be published on this website along with any response sent to you. All personal information will be removed from requests prior to publication.
