Subject Access

Data Protection Act 1998

Section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 provides you with a right of access to any personal data (information about yourself) that is held and processed by Operation Resolve. 

Making a request? 

Should you wish to know whether the investigation holds any of your personal data, and, where held, request a copy, you will need to make a request in writing to the Home Office at the address below:-

Or by post:

Home Office,
Lower Ground Floor Seacole Building,
2 Marsham Street,

When you write to the Home Office you must provide two documents to help establish your identity. These documents must between them provide sufficient information to prove your name, date of birth, current address and signature (eg: a combination of photocopies of driving licence, medical card, birth/adoption certificate, utility bill or passport.)  Please DO NOT send original ID documents.

The Data Protection Act provides 40 calendar days in which to respond to your request and the Home Office aims to respond to your request on or before that deadline.

Certain exemptions may apply that could prevent disclosure of the information to you. Some of these reasons could include, for example:-

  • The prevention and detection of crime  
  • The apprehension and prosecution of offenders, 
  • The interests of national security

How much does it cost?

There is a standard cost of £10 which can be a cheque or postal order (made payable to ‘The Accounting Officer, Home Office’).
