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. please provide the total number of officers currently employed by the force.
  2. Please provide the most recent data for 2018 as to how many times have police officers been physically assaulted while on duty

In Response:

  1. As the information you have requested is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.

I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.

Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means

 Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.

Establishment figures can be found on the Northumbria Police website under the ‘Structure of Northumbria Police’ These figures are updated quarterly.
