Freedom of Information

The RCIPS is committed to fulfilling its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act (2021 Revision) in the spirit of openness, transparency and service to the public interest.

The FOI Law provides the public with the right to information and records held by public authorities about their decisions, activities and services.  The RCIPS responds to requests for information (FOI requests) through an Information Manager who works from Police Headquarters.

While the types of information that the FOI Law directs public authorities to disclose are broad, there are also types of information that are excluded from disclosure under the law.  On this basis an FOI request could be declined.  If an FOI request is declined, however, a process for review and appeal exists, first to the Commissioner of Police, and then to the Ombudsman’s Office.

As the largest public safety agency on island with a breadth of functions and obligations, the media and public are understandably interested in information generated and maintained by the RCIPS.  

Publication Scheme

Having information available that was already released under prior FOI requests reduces the need for subsequent requests, and also increases general public information and transparency.

Making a Request

Those wishing to make a FOI request may do so by email to the Information Manager at foi.pol@gov.ky, or complete the FOI Request Form and submit it via foi.pol@gov.ky. The Ombudsman's Office has developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions to guide and advise those making FOI requests.  All requests should include the full contact information of the requester, as well as a full description of the information being sought.  The Information Manager responds to all FOI requests received.
