We are continually working to develop a culture of greater openness and we are making more information on policing available than ever before.
The Freedom of Information Act is intended to create better public understanding of:
- How public authorities carry out their duties
- Why they make their decisions
- How they spend public money
Under the Act, public authorities are obliged to make information available through the implementation of two key tools:
- PSNI Publication Scheme and
- General Right of Access.
