Fixed penalty notices

Under the freedom of information act please could you tell me how many fixed penalty notices were issued by the council for the following years –
Please give a break down of what these fixed penalty notices were for by group i.e. littering, anti-social behaviour, breach of a PSPO?

Does the council employ a private company to issue the fines?

If so what proportion of the fines were issued by the private company? Please state if the company were only employed for part of the period concerned in the FOI.

What is the financial arrangement with the private company? I.e. paid hourly, get to keep a set proportion of the fine.

Devon County Council does not hold the information you have requested.  Fixed penalty notices for these areas that you have listed are the responsibility of district, unitary and city councils and we would therefore recommend that you approach them for this information.   Contact details can be found on our website at:
