Subject access requests

Find out how to request any information we hold about you.

Make a subject access request

Under the Data Protection Act 2018, individuals have the right to obtain:

  • confirmation that their data is being processed;
  • access to their personal data; and
  • other supplementary information – this largely corresponds to the information that should be provided in a privacy notice

Should you wish to know what information (if any) the Office of the North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner holds about you, then a request can be made in writing to the following address:

A request can be made:

  • in writing to: the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and York, Harrogate Police Station, Beckwith Head Rd, Harrogate, HG3 1FR.
  • or via email to info@northyorkshire-pfcc.gov.uk

Proof of Identity

Before any information can be provided, We need to be satisfied that you are the person you say you are.

Your application must therefore be accompanied by two different official documents, which between them clearly show your name, date of birth, current address and signature (e.g. passport, driving licence, birth certificate or utility bill).

Photocopies or scans are accepted.

Please do not send original documents through the post.

We will process these requests in accordance with the Subject Access Procedure.

Your request will be processed within one month of receipt of a valid request.

Where requests are complex, or numerous, then your request may be extended by a further two months, but you will be advised if this is necessary.

If the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive we may charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or refuse to respond.  If we refuse your request we will explain the reasons why and inform you of your rights to complain.
