Domestic Violence - 1220/21

Date Responded 24 September 2021

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:

I write to request data on the number of incidents of domestic abuse that were reported to your force during the period of UEFA Euro Championships of 2012 (8 June- 1st July) and 2016 (10 June-10 July).

In Response:

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.

This information appears to have been asked for previously by you, and provided to you in FOIs 982/21 and 1145/21. As you are already in possession of the information S21 is applicable.

The responses can also be found where they have been published on the Northumbria Police Disclosure Log.  The ref numbers are as above and the link to the Log can be found below.
