Police Officer Assaults - 1050/19

Date Responded 06 September 2019

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:

The number of physical and verbal assaults targeted at your police officers in the past 10 years. Can you please record this information in calendar years.

In Response:

I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

This data has been collated by searching for all recorded offences with a relevant HO code, where the 'assault police' flag was checked and where the method/means has been marked as 'ASP' (assault police).

We cannot split the total between physical and verbal assaults.

With the above noted I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.
