Incidents In Gateshead - 1104/20

Date Responded 18 August 2020

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:

Could I have the number, types, times and an accurate location as possible without compromising personal information of potential victims of all incidents in the area of Wardley and Pelaw, Gateshead from April 1st to date.

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 follows.

The beats for Pelaw and Wardley have been identified and the central database Incident table queried to return all such incidents based on the date reported.  These have been grouped by type, based on the opening code, Force wide incident number (FWIN),  time and location as Pelaw or Wardley.  The times shown are based on the time that the incident was reported to Northumbria Police.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete.  However, it is important to note that this data has 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.  Whilst requests are motive blind, where requests appear to lack actual public benefit, they can risk being classed as lacking purpose or value.  Accordingly further requests of this nature may attract exemptions.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.

With all the above noted I respond as follows.
