Requesting your Personal Data held by the Police and Crime Commissioner of South Wales
Section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) gives an individual the right to request a copy of the information an organisation holds about them – this is referred to as the right of subject access.
If you wish to obtain information held about you by the Police and Crime Commissioner, then you can submit a Subject Access Request asking for your personal data.
This request for disclosure will only cover data held by the Police and Crime Commissioner of South Wales. It will not cover data held by South Wales Police, the Police National Computer or other police system. For data that may be held by South Wales Police a separate request will need to be made to South Wales Police. Should a request be made that should be handled by South Wales Police we will forward requests onto South Wales Police to respond.
Under the right of subject access you are not entitled to information relating to other people.
Please note that all Subject Access Requests must be made in writing and sent via the post to the Police and Crime Commissioner of South Wales. We do not accept Subject Access Requests over the telephone or via email. This is because of the need for identity documents, application form, and payment.
How to make a Subject Access Request
In order to submit a legitimate Subject Access Request to obtain your personal data to South Wales Police, please;
Once a valid Subject Access Request has been received, the Police and Crime Commissioners office are under a legal obligation to respond to the applicant within 40 calendar days.
Please send your completed request to:
