All incidents with a DV Reference Number attached within the specified areas were reviewed to establish if an officer attended and when they attended.

Its should be noted that some incidents may have occurred between 10pm and 7am but an officer may have attended at an appointment outside of these hours.  These incidents would not be included in the count.
