SYP Response: 

The above questions relate to the number of European Arrest Warrants “issued” by the police force. Under Section 1(1) (a) of the Freedom of Information Act our response is one of “no information held”, as our force does not “issue” European Arrest Warrants.

Under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act- duty to assist, we welcome any refined requests that surrounds the number of European Arrest Warrants “requested” by a force. Please note however that we reserve the right to apply exemption(s) under the Freedom of Information Act to any possible information held.
