Since 1 January 2005, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has given you a right of access to recorded information held by public authorities, subject to certain exemptions.
The FOIA applies to a vast majority of public authorities, including the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Norfolk.

41 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected across England and Wales on the 15 November 2012. When the elected PCCs took office on the 22 November 2012 they became responsible for a combined budget of £8 billion.
PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area. Their role is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account, effectively making them answerable to the communities they serve.
