Publication scheme


Under Section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public authorities are required to produce a Publication Scheme.  The Information Commissioner has specified several categories of information (Information Classes) and guidance as to what type of information should be published on the scheme.  This is entitled the Model Publication Scheme.

The South Yorkshire Police Publication Scheme has been designed in relation to the Information Commissioner's Model Scheme and is highlights information and publications currently available from South Yorkshire. All information is available on this web-site and/or a hypertext link will direct you to the information in question (there is no charge for the information accessed via the publication scheme).
