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.
1. How many burglaries were reported to the force between December 20 and December 27 in 2020, 2019 and 2018? Please provide a breakdown of the number of offences reported by date and by year.
2. How many of those burglaries were residential? Please breakdown by date and year.
3. How many of those burglaries were aggravated? Please breakdown by date and year.
I’d be grateful if you could provide the force’s disclosure in a csv spreadsheet, with columns headed as follows:
Year – Date – Total Burglaries – Total Residential Burglaries – Total Aggravated Burglaries
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.
|Year||Date||Total Burglaries||Total Residential Burglaries||Total Aggravated Burglaries|
Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.
The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
