Following the changes to Government advice, from Tuesday 24 March our offices will not be staffed other than for essential working. We will therefore not be able to collect correspondence sent via post.
All our services remain up and running as normal with staff working from home.
Where possible, we ask that you contact us online or call 01656 303444.
Request for the disclosure of information for the purpose of insurance claims are dealt with directly between insurers and the Police. Claimants should contact their insurers for further details.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the National Police Chiefs Council in conjunction with the Office of the Information Commissioner Office (ICO) and the Association of British Insurers (ABI), permits Insurers and Loss Adjusters to request information from a police force for the purposes of validating a claim.
South Wales Police are not permitted to disclose any details (including confirmation of the occurrence number or status of investigation) via the telephone, e-mail or post until a legitimate application and the appropriate fee, consent or evidence has been received.
Furthermore, the MOU states that ‘the Police will not acknowledge letters registering the insurer’s interest in a particular case. Insurers are asked to keep these letters to a minimum, and not send them as a matter of routine, as many Forces do not have the resources to deal with large volumes of correspondence’.
