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. Those arrested for shoplifting and the theft value for each arrest, in each of the following years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

2. Those charged with a shoplifting offence and the theft value for each charge in each of the following years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention. 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.

 To note - due to both time constraints and to avoid lengthy documentation, the values have been presented in amount groupings.

 With the above in mind I am able to disclose the located information to you as attached.
