Crime Statistics for Gateshead - 856/23

Date Responded 23 June 2023

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:

Crime within Gateshead Borough, 2015 to present.

Different crime, crime types with the data e.g. (anti-social behaviour) .

spatial data would be helpful but non spatial is fine as well.

If you have an API for this that would be useful but fine if not

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 attached.

The below caveats should be noted when viewing the attached response.

  • We only have data from 01/01/2017, and have included the incidents up to 31/05/2023.  Crime data is up to 11/06/2023.
  • The request states crimes but mentions ASB.  ASB are incidents, not crimes, therefore we have included two tables, one for Crimes and one for incidents that have not been crimed.  If we included all of the incidents we would have duplication with the crimed incidents and the crime data.  Admin and abandoned calls have also been removed from the incident table.
  • We are unable to include the geospatial data, we have however included the sector within which the incident or crime occurred.
  • 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.
