Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

  1. The number of incidents relating to Airbnb from 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19
  2. Where the incidents were classed as crimes, what was the nature of the crime?
  3. What was the outcome of the investigation - did charges result?

In Response:

We are only able to search the first three lines of the incident description.  It is possible that one of the keywords may feature later in the incident description but if so, that incident will not be captured in this dataset.

With the above noted I am able to provide the below.
