The FOI Act gives a right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities.

We have a number of policies & procedures that set boundaries for the Constabulary's behaviour as an organisation and for its staff.

Durham Constabulary are committed to providing an excellent policing service that we and those we serve can be proud of and which keeps our communities safe. 

The law recognises that there are situations where police officers may be required to use force.
