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

You asked:

3.Please can you provide the ages and gender of those charged or cautioned for the offences mentioned in Q1 for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018

In Response:

With regards to point 1 and 2 the below exemption is applied as relevant.

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.

Your request at points 1 and 2 is almost identical to a previous request which is published on the Northumbria Police Disclosure Log.  That information is therefore freely available.

FOI 101/19  refers .
