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.
Please can you provide me with the number of police reports of indecent exposure between the following periods:
- 23rd March 2020 – 31st May 2020
- 23rd March 2019 – 31st May 2019
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.
To note we have taken your terminology of ‘reports’ to refer to crimes. Crime counting rules indicate that a report of indecent exposure would be logged as a crime.
