In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

As with any keyword search, the search will only return exact matches within the Crime MO.  This does not account for differences in terminology and/or spelling used.  Also, we cannot search the crime investigation screens/additional information screens, if the terms are not used within the MO the crime will not be identified.

The keywords  supplied are 'Amazon parcels' and 'Amazon deliveries', these are very specific.  To widen the search the only keyword used was 'Amazon'.  The data has then been reviewed to include only those offences that relate to the delivery of parcels.

The word etc. added to each part of the request has been discounted as this is none specific .

All crimes in the date ranges requested have been searched using the keywords in the MO and the results have been recorded.

With all the above noted please see the attached which answers your request.
