We are busy developing a new and improved website

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public authorities have to produce a publication scheme. As of 1st January 2009 the Information Commissioner introduced a new model Publication Scheme that applies to all public authorities.

From 1st January 2005, Cumbria Constabulary also respond to individual requests for information not listed in the Publication Scheme. If you wish to request information in this way, you should apply using the postal and e-mail addresses below, and include the same details. We will provide information listed in the Publication Scheme promptly and in any case within twenty working days. We aim to provide information subject to an individual request within twenty working days, although this may be extended in certain circumstances.

The majority of information can be accessed via this Constabulary website. For a guide to the information Cumbria Constabulary publish please see the following sections:

  • Who we are & what we do
  • What we spend & how we spend it
  • What our priorities are & how we are doing

Badger Cull Costs
