Date Responded 12 October 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:

1. Can you please provide the total number of out of court disposals for the first six months of 2020, as well as a monthly breakdown of the total number of out of court disposals in that period?

2. Can you please advise the total number of charges/summonses for the same period?

3. Can you please provide the total number of out of court disposals for the first six months of the previous five years, to allow an accurate comparison?

4. In relation to the 2020 out of court disposals, can you please provide a breakdown of which of the following disposals were used:
a) community resolution
b) simple caution
c) conditional caution
d) PND
e) any other out of court disposal

5. Finally, can you please provide a summary of the crime type that each out of court disposal related to in the first six months of 2020.

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 following caveats should however be noted regarding the data supplied below:
• The above data is based on disposal data. A historical record of this is not kept, only the current disposal status. As such it is accurate as of 25 September 2020.
• Note that in the tables provided for points 4 and 5, only the exact disposal has been queried; e.g. youth conditional cautions would not be included within the Conditional Caution column.
