The National Wildlife Crime Unit comes under the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).

ACPO came under the Freedom of Information Act on November 1, 2011.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.

Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information. Individuals already have the right of access to information about themselves under the Data Protection Act 1998.

As far as public authorities are concerned, the Freedom of Information Act will extend this right to allow public access to all types of information held
