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. How many allegations of crimes have been reported to Northumbria Police inside HMP Northumberland in 2016, 2017 and 2018 to date.

2. Of these, how many related to allegations of sexual assault

3. Of these, how many relate to allegations of drug-related offences

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.

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.

Data has been collated through a search of all crimes recorded between 01/01/2016 and 10/08/2018 in the area the prison is located and where the location type listed on the crime is "prison."

Question 2 is the number of those classified as sexual offence.

Question 3 is the number of those classified as a drug offence.  Included in question 3 are those offences recorded under "Conveyance etc of List A articles into or out of prison" where the article conveyed is suspected to be or has been confirmed as drugs.  There are some offences where it is not possible to identify the article (for example the item has been swallowed before it could be identified), these cases have not been included in the count for question 3.

With the above in mind, I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.
